    • Microwave spectrum and dipole moment of pentafluorobenzene

      S Doraiswamy S D Sharma

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      With the idea of evaluating the dipole moment of pentafluorobenzene from a lowJ transition, its microwave spectrum was investigated in the frequency region of 8,000 to 12,400 MHz. The spectrum had been earlier observed by the authors in the 12,400 to 18,000 MHz region which needs reassignment in the light of present investigations. The rotational constants areA=1480·856±0·003 MHz,B=1030·066±0·003 MHz andC=607·496±0·002 MHz. The dipole moment is 1·44±0·05 D.

    • Multiple scattering of muons in beryllium

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The defocussing and the depolarization of a high energy muon beam in a beryllium filter, often used to eliminate accompanying pions, have been studied. The quantum mechanical transport equation of Waldmann, which can also be used to describe the multiple scattering of Dirac particles, is solved with a distorted wave Born approximation. Calculations are done for both the Thomas-Fermi and the Hartree-Fock potential of the beryllium atom. It is shown that the Hartree-Fock potential leads to a less divergent beam. The depolarization of a longitudinally polarized muon beam in passage through a thin beryllium foil is also studied.

    • Laser excited fluorescence of Na2

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Fluorescence was excited in theB1ΓuX1Σg+ system of Na2, using the 488 and 514.5 nm radiations from a cw Ar+ laser. The fluorescence was monitored through a double monochromator employing photoelectronic detection. In the spectrum resulting from the 488 nm excitation, apart from a large number of fluorescence series, a previously unreported series could be identified. On either side of all the members of the strongest series a large number of collisional satellites were observed and assigned.

    • Bound-free transitions and the dissociation limit

      A K Ray S D Sharma G D Saksena

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Following a sequential two-photon excitation, fluorescence is observed from several selectively excited single rotational-vibrational energy levels of theE3π0g+ state of molecular iodine. The re-emittedEB fluorescence spectrum from each of the populated rovibrational level of theE state consists of a series of sharp lines terminating on the various discrete ro-vibrational levels of theB state and a few broad lines due to transitions taking place on to the continuum of theB state. The point of transition from sharp lines to broad features in the fluorescence spectrum has been utilized to determine theB state dissociation limit. This method of obtaining the dissociation limit of the molecular electronic states appears to be quite simple and straightforward.
