Abstract

Both laser-induced fluorescence and cavity ring-down spectral observations were made in the Schumann-Runge band system of oxygen, using a novel-type ultranarrow deep-UV pulsed laser source. From measurements on the very weak (0,0) band pressure broadening, pressure shift, and predissociation line-broadening parameters were determined for the B Σu-3, v=0, Fi fine-structure components for various rotational levels in O2. The information content from these studies was combined with that of entirely independent measurements probing the much stronger (0,10), (0,19), and (0,20) Schumann-Runge bands involving preparation of vibrationally excited O2 molecules via photolysis of ozone. The investigations result in a consistent set of predissociation widths for the B Σu-3, v=0 state of oxygen. © 2005 American Institute of Physics.
