dc.description.abstractMetastable $NCl(a^{1}\Delta)$ is a promising energy carrier for use in chemically driven iodine lasers. The present studies of NCl kinetics were conducted in support of efforts to develop an NCl(a)/I laser system. Photolysis of $N_{3}Cl$ was used to generate NCl for spectroscopic and kinetic measurements. The kinetics of NCl in the ground and excited electronic states was studied by means of time-resolved direct absorption and emission measurements. Rate constants for removal of NCl(a) by $O_{2}$, $H_{2}$, $Cl_{2}$, $I_{2}$, $ClN_{3}$ and self-annihilation $(NCl(a)+NCl(a))$ were determined. The reaction of NCl(a) with $I_{2}$ and energy transfer from NCl(a) to I were examined using photolysis of $N_{3}Cl/I_{2}$ and $N_{3}Cl/CH_{2}I_{2}$ mixtures, respectively. Time-resolved fluorescence from $I^{*}$ was used to follow the reaction and transfer kinetics. Kinetic models were developed to simulate the $I^{*}$ time histories. The models, which were anchored by the NCl removal rate constants, were used to explore the kinetics of secondary photoproducts. The relevance of the results to NCl/I transfer lasers will be discussed.en_US
