Paper Abstract

Studies of vibration-vibration exchange in CO molecules excited up to vibration quantum numbers v=20 are performed both theoretically and expethnentally. New kinetic model taking into account muhi-quantum VV exchange in temperature range T=100Ö300K is described for the first time. Description of the experimental methodology allowing for studies of effects of relaxation of the vibrational distribution after a sudden disturbance is given. The disturbance of the vibrational distribution is produced by Q-switched short pulse of single line radiation in fundamental band The relaxation is studied by measuiing laser pulse energy of the second pulse initiated by resonator Q-switching produced with variable time delay relative to the first pulse. A set of kinetic rate constants accepted in the model for various gas temperatures, vibration level numbers and number of exehanged vibration quanta from 1 to 4 is presented. Good agreement between experiniental data and results of the advanced theory is the first direct evidence in support of multi-quantum exchange model.
