Abstract : Several of the physicochemical methods used within approximately the last 15 years for research studies performed with molecular nitrogen, atomic nitrogen, molecular oxygen, atomic oxygen and nitric oxide are summarized. The use of an electron-beam probe is extensively discussed since this technique has been directly applied to rarefied, nonradiating, nitrogen-containing gas flows. Some of the techniques used in the past for measurement of gas 'temperatures' are outlined. (Author)
