Abstract : Experimental kinetic measurements were made for mercury and mercury halide systems that have relevance for mercury halide lasers operating on the B-X transitions. The quenching of Hg(3P2) atoms by halogens, the vibrational relaxation of HgCl(B) and HgBr(B), and the dissociative excitation transfer from N2(A) and Xe(3P2,1) to HgCl2, HgBr2, CH3HgCl, CH3HgBr and CH3HgI were studied. In addition, relaxation processes in the triplet states of N2 were investigated; the very facile coupling between the N2(W) and N2(B) and N2(B) states was discovered and studied at the state-to-state level.
