Vibrational distribution in NO(X2Pi) formed by self quenching of NO A 2Sigma+ (v=0).
Time-resolved FTIR has been used to study the emission from the NO X 2Pi (v) products formed both by fluorescence and by collisional self quenching of the NO A 2Sigma+ (v=0) state. Vibrational excitation has been observed in ground state NO with populations up to at least v=20. Under conditions where fluorescence is the dominant removal process the nascent distribution in ground state NO(v) was found to be determined by the relative magnitude of the emission coefficients. Collisional quenchin...Expand abstract
