The Nitrogen Afterglow

  • B. A. Thrush

Recent progress towards understanding the mechanisms by which the recombination of ground state nitrogen atoms populates excited electronic states of N2 is reviewed. It is shown that the areas of agreement between various studies now substantially exceed the areas of disagreement.
