Examples include destruction of a quantum state by collision-induced nonradiative transitions, collision-induced predissociation, rotational energy transfer and vibrational energy transfer. The relative magnitudes of the cross sections $\sigma$ may be correlated fairly well in many cases by the simple relationship In $\sigma \alpha \epsilon$ where $\epsilon$ is the intermolecular well depth between the decaying molecule and the collision partner. Accounts of the correlation based either on ""complex"" formation or the radial distribution function will be given. Experimental checks of the indicated temperature-dependence of these cross sections will be described. en_US dc.format.extent 108892 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title RELATING COLLISION-INDUCED CROSS SECTIONS TO INTERMOLECULAR WELL DEPTH en_US dc.type article en_US
