Abstract

Cu emission resulting from the reaction of copper atoms with N2(A,v=0,1,2) in a flowing afterglow apparatus is compared to that resulting from interaction of Cu with N2(A,v=0). The latter is obtained from vibrationally excited N2(A) by using "vibrational quenchers". The dependence of the Cu excitation on the N2(A,v′-X,v″) Franck-Condon factors and on the energy matches for the N2(A,v′) + Cu(2S1/2) → N2(X,v″) + Cu* reaction is investigated.
