Determination of Radiative Lifetimes In Neutral Nitrogen Using Short Laser-pulses From A Distributed Feedback Dye-laser
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Zeitschrift Fur Physik D Atoms, Molecules and Clusters
Radiative lifetimes were determined for two short-lived states in neutral nitrogen. Following photodissociation and two-photon excitation employing the same UV source, excitation to higher states was performed with a distributed feedback dye laser (DFDL). The lifetimes were found to be tau(2p2 4d4D7/2) = 17(3) ns and tau(2p2 5s4P5/2) = 22(3) ns.
