    The NO(v,J)-fragment population distributions and recoil energies were measured for the vibrational predissociation of NO·HF following excitation of the H–F stretch. Most of the available energy appears in NO vibration and/or HF rotation. There is little recoil momentum. All NO(v,J)...

    NI and NII fluorescent radiation has been observed when N2 was irradiated by undispersed synchrotron radiation with an upper energy limit of approximately 200 eV. The excited fragments originate from dissociation of a band of excited ionic states of N2 lying between 34.7 and 44 eV.
