Measures the energy relaxation times of the fundamental stretching modes in the electronic ground states of OH[sup -], OD[sup -], SH[sup -] and TeH[sup -] in a variety of alkali halides by incoherent laser saturation. Vibrational lifetimes magnitudes compared to those of other heteronuclear diatomics diluted in crystals.

    In the past a variety of electron binding motifs has been identified for sodium chloride cluster anions. As for all of these clusters the excess electron is predicted to be bound in self-consistent-field calculations, the different binding mechanisms can be understood in terms of a one-electron...
