Paper Abstract

Pressure transients are observed in absorbing gases at low pressure in a non-resonant spectrophone. At very low pressure (transition saturated) the transient is negative on irradiation. Interpretation is given in terms of thermodynamics of laser driven systems. The local value of the partition function depends exponentially on the incident radiation's intensity. The observed depression on irradiation is the consequence of the law of mass action applied to inhomogeneously irradiated systems.
