Superfluorescent emission from a hollow waveguide filled with HCl has been obtained on the v=2→v=1 band when optically pumped on the v=0→v=2 band. Energy conversion efficiency in excess of 10% has been measured. The beam quality of the emission was three times better than that of the pump radiation under optimal conditions.

    When stimulated Raman pumping (SRP) is applied to a stream of isolated molecules, such as found in a supersonic molecular beam expansion, we show that SRP can neither saturate nor power broaden a molecular transition connecting two metastable levels that is resonant with the energy difference...

    Time-of-flight and kinetic energy distributions were obtained for H+ fragments resulting from electron bombardment of HF, HCl, HBr, and HI at electron energies between 21.2 and 51.2 eV. Several distinct features were observed in these spectra for each molecule and the corresponding threshold...

    The infrared spectra of the water (H2O,HDO,D2O) complexes with HCl, HBr, HI, Cl2, Br2 and I2 have been studied in argon matrices in the 11 to 25 K interval. In all cases, water acts as a lone-pair donor. The hydrogen halide complexes are effectively planar and rotate around the axis through the...
