The effect of parity conservation on the spin-orbit conserving and spin-orbit changing differential cross sections for the inelastic scattering of NO(X) by Ar.

Abstract:

The fully Λ-doublet resolved state-to-state differential cross sections (DCSs) for the collisions of NO(X, (2)Π, v = 0, j = 0.5) with Ar have been shown to depend sensitively on the conservation of the total parity of the NO molecular wavefunction. Parity changing collisions exhibit a single maximum only in the DCS, while parity conserving transitions exhibit multiple rainbow peaks. This behaviour is shown to arise directly from the constructive or destructive interference of collisions impac...
