Abstract : This report presents the results of an evaluation of the H + NF2 flame as an efficient generator of electronically excited molecular nitrogen (Active Nitrogen). To this end, the following measurements have been made: (1) The absolute populations of active nitrogen produced in the H/H2 + NF2 flame were measured. This work was performed in a fast-flow reactor equipped with an optical emission spectroscopy (OES) experiment. Hydrogen atoms were generated by a microwave discharge in a dilute mixture of H2 in He or Ar. (2) A comparison of the efficiencies of production for these species was made for the D + NF2 flame, in which no D2 was present. This work was also performed in the OES flow reactor.
