Abstract

"The lifetime of the A¹π state of carbon monoxide has been measured using a pulsed invertron excitation source and delayed coincidence measurement technique on the fourth positive system. Eighteen bands, originating from the upper states v' = 0 to 5, were examined at pressures between 500 and 50 microns, with no pressure dependence noted. The data were corrected for photon "pile up" and least-squares fitted to the sum of two exponentials. The transition moment was found to vary and was expanded about the r-centroid of the v' = 0 to v" = 0 transition. Oscillator strengths are calculated and compared with those of other experiments"--Abstract, page ii.
