Paper Abstract

Metastable NCl(a1(Delta) ) is a promising energy carrier for use in chemically driven iodine lasers. The present studies of NCl(a) kinetics and demonstration of a non- intrusive method for detecting NCl(X) were conducted in support of efforts to develop an NCl(a)/I laser system. Photolysis of ClN3 by O2, H2, HCl, Cl2 and ClN3 were determined. The result were consistent with recent measurements made in a discharge flow system. NCl(X) was detected via transient absorption of the b-(chi) system. A CW ring dye laser was used to record a high-resolution spectrum of the origin band. Time resolved absorption measurements were used to examine the kinetics of NCl(X) formation and decay.
