Observation of dipole–dipole pair absorption using optogalvanic detection

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The first reported use is described of optogalvanic detection to observe laser-induced, dipole–dipole pair absorption in discharges of barium and helium–barium. Fractional changes in steady-state discharge populations as small as one part in 105 that are due to the laser-induced collision are observed. In both experiments the absorption maxima occur at the predicted (R = ∞) wavelength and have a full width at half-maximum of approximately 15 cm−1.
