Abstract : The light emission from shock-heated CS2-Ar mixtures varying in composition from 1 to 100% CS2 has been measured as a function of wavelength in the range 3750-8250 A. Measurements of the Arrhenius activation energy indicate that the molecule is excited to the triplet Sigma(u)(+) state. It was not possible to distinguish between a single-step excitation process and a more complex mechanism involving vibrational excitation of the ground state. (Author)
