Rotational polarisation effects in the inelastic collisions of NO(X) and Ar

Abstract:

Rotational polarisation effects have been investigated in the rotationally inelastic collisions of NO(X) and Ar by means of theoretical and experimental methods. Rotational polarisation describes the correlation between the k–k'–j' vectors, that is the initial and final relative velocities of the colliding partners and the final rotational angular momentum of the diatom, respectively. The simplest types of polarisation are the rotational orientation, or preferred sense of rotation, and the...
