Pulse-Probe Measurements in Low-Temperature, Low-Pressure SF6

  • John L. Lyman
Conference paper


The experimental determination of the intramolecular distribution of vibrational energy following infrared laser excitation of polyatomic molecules has been a goal of many researchers in recent years. One popular method of investigation has been the pulse-probe technique with SF6 and similar species.
