Abstract : Under the previous grant, research has been carried out on translation-to-vibration, rotation (T-V, R) transfer excitation processes and reactive events of photolytically-produced hot atoms which have kinetic energies of 1-3 eV. We describe the past accomplishments of laser and infrared probing in systems such as hydrogen + nitrogen oxide, hydrogen,deuterium + hydrogen fluoride, and collisional dissociation of bromine (B, v', J'). We then discuss recent successful efforts to construct an apparatus to produce even more highly energetic neutral atoms and radicals by laser ablation techniques and the first results in obtaining translationally fast molecular and radical species.
