Collisional depolarization of OH(A) studied by Zeeman quantum beat spectroscopy

Abstract:

The depolarization of the rotational angular momentum of electronically excited OH(2Sigma;) radicals through collisions with water molecules has been measured using Zeeman quantum beat spectroscopy. The new data have permitted the evaluation of OH(A) state-specific quenching and angular momentum depolarization cross-sections for superthermal OH(A) radicals with mean relative velocities centred around 3500 m s-1. The quenching cross-sections are compared both with values available in the liter...
