Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe a new energy transfer concept to produce excited electronic states of molecules that are candidates for short wave chemical lasers. Vibrational excitation within the ground state is used to enhance the production of excited electronic states via energy transfer from metastable species such as O2(a) and NF(a). We describe experiments on the molecule IF as a prototype system.
