Abstract

The equilibration of the lower laser levels in CO2, 10O0 and 02O0, has been studied via a laser-induced fluorescence technique. We conclude that the coupling between these levels is rapid, ≥1100 ms-1 Torr-1, and that these levels are also coupled though at a somewhat slower rate of 387 ± 75 ms-1 Torr-1 to the bending modes of CO2.
