Abstract : The first volume of this report deals with studies related to the COCHISE facility which a low temperature, low pressure device developed for the study of the spectrally resolved infrared fluorescence resulting from chemi-excitation reactions occurring under near single collision conditions. Several topics are discussed including (a) a study of the NO infrared fluorescence resulting from the reaction of metastable nitrogen atoms with oxygen molecules, (b) an examination of infrared fluorescence from chemi-excited 03, (c) a proposed technique for implementing a nitrogen lamp resonance absorption diagnostic into the facility, (d) a preliminary examination of the COCHISE optical system, and (e) a review of a flow tube experiment directed towards the study of the products resulting from the reactions of N2(A 3 sigma(+) sub u) with oxygen atoms and molecules. The second volume of the report is concerned with studies related to the LABCEDE facility which is a device constructed to observe the fluorescence resulting from the electron irradiation of various atmospheric gases. Topics covered include an examination of CO and CO2 infrared fluorescence occurring upon electron irradiation of mixtures of Ar/CO2 and an examination of the SWIR radiation produced by irradiation of air-like mixtures.
