Paper Abstract

The search for a short wavelength chemical laser (λ < 1.3 μ) has been, so far, unsuccessful but far from fruitless. The kinetic and spectroscopic data collected in studies concerned with laser development are truly impressive. Numerous chemiluminescent reactions have been reported, and many radiative lifetimes and quenching rates for excited molecular states have been measured. In addition, energy transfer among excited vibrational and rotational levels has been an active area of research.
