In this paper, we theoretically studied examined the effects of pulsed and continuous electromagnetic radiation on the generation and branching of chains in an explosive mixture near the first limit of ignition using the Semenov kinetic scheme. The effects of processing the inner surface of a quartz reactor in the interval between experiments with pulsed light of a xenon lamp on the intensity of the generation reaction under the first ignition limit of an explosive mixture were experimentally studied. Light irradiation energy (0.5 J, 200 pulses) was found to be insufficient for a noticeable effect on surface active centers and the generation reaction.
