Optical Emission of Molecules in Combined Laser and Electrostatic Fields

Author(s): Nirmal Kumar and Mukesh Kumar

Optical properties of the emission from laser-induced electrostatic under combined pulse excitation were studied. An increase in line emission intensity by  4 times was obtained for combined laser pulse interaction under electrostatic field. Optimum nature was found correlated with an optimum expansion of combined state. The principal requirement is that the molecules must contain an isolated bond between a highly electronegative alone and a hydrogen (or light metal) that is sufficiently soft to allow torsional motion of the hydrogen atom.
