Abstract : CF has been detected using frequency doubled dye laser radiation (rather than the Raman shifted dye laser radiation reported previously). Radiative lifetime studies have not yet been completed; pulsed production methods of CF have been used to show that conditions can be found under which it will be possible to measure reaction kinetics of the CF + O bimolecular reaction. The pulsed Fourier transform infrared emission spectrometer is now complete and is undergoing tests. A dedicated fast transient digitiser is being built and the interface to a micrometer is complete: this will enable us to take time resolved interferograms of the emission and transform these to obtain time resolved spectra of the ir active components. A graduate student is working full time on this project.
