Paper Abstract

FTIR spectroscopy is routinely used by this research group as a tool in laser-induced chemistry for identification of end products, reaction mechanisms and kinetic studies. Specific recent studies have included the dissociation of the C-0 bond in alcohols and phosphorus compounds, the formation of polycrystal-line germanium films from germane and the kinetics of the laser-induced chemistry of allylic species and NF3/NO reactions. The specifics of the experimental techniques used in these investigations have been adequately described elsewhere)-2. Fundamentally, the technique is simply the irradiation of gas phase samples using a continuous wave CO2 laser at the frequency of an absorption band in the molecule which is resonant with the output of the CO2 laser.
