Abstract : Laser double resonance experiments in HF were extended to probing levels as high as J=13 to define the processes of population transfer between rotational levels and transfer from vibration to rotation. In the first part of this report rotational transfer experiments are described and the results are compared with three different kinetic models. Using the criteria of transfer rates and signal shapes for evaluation, the Polyani-Woodall model was found to best describe the data. The… CONTINUE READING
