Paper Abstract

Rotationally inelastic collisions of HF are studied using a crossed molecular beams apparatus. We observe a rotational rainbow effect for highly excited rotational states, corresponding to strongly repulsive scattering of Ar off the repulsive core of the HF. In addition, we observe a novel `shoulder' for scattering into the rotationless state.
