Abstract : The primary purpose of the research was to study the nature of matrix isolated monomeric and low polymeric alkali halide species. In these experiments, the vapor above molten alkali halide samples was isolated at liquid He temperature in an excess of a rare gas or other matrix material. The infrared spectrum was then recorded. The plan was to study the structure or symmetry of the trapped species, determine their force constants, and in some cases establish their very existence. In addition, the interaction of the trapped species with the matrix host was of fundamental importance. A number of other studies which proceded as out-growths from the above primary objectives are described. (Author)
