dc.description.abstractWe have used a new $technique^{1}$ to measure the velocity dependence of the Rotational Energy transfer (RET) rate constants for the process \[Na^{*}_{2}(j_{i}) + Xe \to Na^{*}_{2}(j_{i} + \Delta) + Xe\] Where $j_{i}$ is the initial rotational quantum number and is the change in rotational quantum number. By tuning a single-mode dye laser across the Doppler profile of a molecular resonance we can very the average relative velocity from $450^{\circ} K$ (line center) to $2400^{\circ} K$ (=2 Ghz. detuned). We made $measurements^{2}$ for four different values of $\Delta$ for each of three $J_{i}$’s. Cross sections for $j_{i}=66$ increase with velocity whereas those for $j_{i}=38$ and 16 stay constant or decrease. A dramatic decrease is observed for $j_{i}=164$ and large $\Delta$.en_US
