Dynamics of Changes in the Infrared Spectrum of Distilled and Heavy Water upon Exposure to an Electron Beam of Nanosecond Duration
The absorption spectra of distilled and heavy water upon exposure to an electron beam of nanosecond duration are investigated. The changes in the absorption spectrum of distilled water after exposure to an electron beam are that the absorption band of valence vibrations of the OH groups becomes broadened, the amplitude of the valence asymmetric band increases, and a shift of the absorption maximums toward shorter wavelength frequencies and an increase in the amplitudes with insignificant band broadening are observed for absorption bands comprised of the sum of deformation and libration vibrations of water molecules and the deformation band of water. The changes in the absorption spectrum of heavy water after its irradiation with an electron beam consist in that the band of valence vibrations of the OH groups of the H2O and HDO molecules is broadened, while the absorption band of the OH overtones of the deformation vibrations of the HDO molecule becomes stronger and the absorption range is preserved. A shift of the absorption maximum toward higher frequencies is observed for the deformation vibrations of the H2O and HDO molecules of heavy water, and the maximum of deformation vibrations of the D2O molecules remains unchanged.
