Nuclear spin symmetry conservation and relaxation in water ((1)H2(16)O) studied by cavity ring-down (CRD) spectroscopy of supersonic jets.


We report high resolution near-infrared laser spectra of water seeded in a supersonic jet expansion of argon probed by cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS) in the R branch of the 2ν3 band (above 7500 cm(-1)) at several effective temperatures T < 30 K. Our goal is to study nuclear spin symmetry conservation and relaxation. For low mole fractions of water in… (More)
