Abstract : This three year research program was comprised of several projects grouped into three areas, which were the chemistry of ClN3 dissociation and the NCl/I* laser system, NH(a(1)delta) insertion reactions with molecular halogens and interhalogens, and the synthesis and characterization of group III azides and their decomposition to form group III nitride thin films. The results obtained included the demonstration of a new chemical laser (NILE, or nitrene-iodine-laser-experiment) based on energy transfer from NCl(a(1)delta) to iodine atoms, enhanced understanding of the dynamics of an entire group of reactions with halogen amine intermediates, the first spectroscopic characterizations of fully azide substituted boron, aluminum, and gallium compounds, and the demonstration of low temperature methods for the deposition of BN and AlN thin films.
