Paper Abstract

The use of lasers as a means to generate populations of such transients as radicals, excited states and ions in the laboratory and as a probe of their concentration is discussed. The experimental arrangements for studies of the spectroscopy of radicals and ions, the excited state dynamics of radicals and reaction kinetics of these species are illustrated using examples from our laboratory and others. Specific results discussed include the reaction kinetics of the C3 radical, spectroscopy and excited state dynamics of the cyclopentadienyl and NO3 radicals and initial experiments on the dimethyldi-acetylene ion and the reaction system of C4H/C4H2.
