ABSTRACT
State-to-state collision energy transfer in the 2 3Πg, 3 3Πg, 3 3Σ+g, 1 3Σ-g, and 1 3Δg states and from singlet to triplet states of 7Li2 has been studied experimentally by continuous wave optical–optical double resonance (OODR) resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. Propensity rules of collision-induced transitions within a triplet state have been observed. When a rovibrational (v,J) level of the F 1Σ+g or G 1Πg state was excited by OODR transition, fluorescence from high-lying triplet gerade states to the a 3Σ+u and/or b 3Πu states was always observed. This indicates that population can transfer from F 1Σ+g and G 1Πg states to triplet states by collision. Irrespective of the J of the initially excited singlet level, the most intense fluorescence from the triplet state will occur at the N or J corresponding to that of the F 1Σ+g (and/or G 1Πg)∼3Λg mixed levels. Molecular population moves to the mixed levels and then transfers to the triplet state. This clearly indicates that singlet–triplet mixed levels played the role of a gateway, through which the population moves from singlet to triplet states. The gateway levels can be perturbed levels in the same vibrational level of the F 1Σ+g or G 1Πg state, or the perturbed levels in different vibrational levels. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
