Abstract : The infrared absorption coefficient and Raman scattering cross sections of the fluorine atom triplet P(3/2) to triplet P(1/2) transition at 404/cm are estimated. The results are discussed in terms of probing fluorine atom concentrations in chemical lasers. It is shown that absorption and coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering can give sensitivity better than 10 raised to the fifteenth power atoms per cc.
