"" en_US dc.description Author Institution: Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, University of California en_US dc.description.abstract The addition of CO to the $Mg + N_{2}O$ reaction has previously been $reported^{1}$ to enhance the resulting MgO chemiluminescence and to increase the intensity of the forbidden. Mg atom $(^{3}P_{1}\rightarrow\ ^{1}S_{O})$ transition at 457.1 nm. This work examines the role of metastable Mg ($^{3}p$) atoms, produced directly in a low voltage discharge, in the $Mg + N_{2}O$ reaction. Although the metastables are efficiently quenched by the addition of $N_{2}O$, preliminary experiments Indicate the Mg ($^{3}p$) is not the key reactant leading to MgO $(B^{1}\Sigma - X^{1}\Sigma)$ chemilumiescence in the $Mg + N_{2}O$ reaction. en_US dc.format.extent 106106 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title THE ROLE OF Mg ($^{3}P$) ATOMS IN THE $Mg + NO_{2}$ REACTION en_US dc.type article en_US
