Paper Abstract

Characteristic properties of forming of the photoacoustic detector signal at excitation of absorbing gas molecules by a short laser pulse ((tau) << (tau) vt) allowing for the natural oscillations of microphone membrane are considered. The technique for (tau) vt measurement is proposed on the strength that the signal form is determined by the oscillation mentioned above under low pressure (P <EQ 10 torr). the results of measurement of (tau) vt of the vibrational state (nu) 1 + 3 (nu) 3 in H2O for the collisions H2O- H2O and H2O-air are presented.
