Reports on absolute state-to-state cross sections for rotationally inelastic scattering in crossed jets of hydrogen fluoride (HF) with helium, neon and argon at mean center-of-mass collision energies. Probe of column-integrated densities of HF in scattering states in the jet intersection region via direct absorption of light from a narrow bandwidth.

    High-efficiency and high-energy operation of HF chemical lasers was simultaneously realized using a low pressure mixture of H2/F2/O2/MoF6 initiated by an intense electron beam. The addition of small amounts of MoF6 gas to the mixture of H2/F2/O2 resulted in an increase in laser output energy and...
