DISSOCIATION OF NH-3 TO ELECTRONIC GROUND-STATE FRAGMENTS BY HIGH-INTENSITY CO-2 LASER-RADIATION
- The dissociation of NH3 into electronic ground-state fragments NH2(2B1) + H by high-intensity CO2 laser radiation has been observed under essentially collision free conditions and as a function of NH3 pressure, using laser fluorescence excitation for the NH2 detection. Luminescence from excited NH2 (2A1) produced directly by the CO2 laser has also been observed. The relative yield of NH2 (2A1) is estimated to be smaller than that of NH2 (2B1) by several orders of magnitude. © 1976.
