Study of the excitation spectrum in the continuous region permits direct measurement of the B state contribution to the visible absorption and its separation from the stronger overlying $^{1}{\Pi}_{1}$ continuum. Our results confirm the assignment of the long wavelength shoulder on the gas phase $Br_{2}$ visible absorption spectrum to the B state. A value of $7.3 {\mu} s$ is found for the $B^{3}{\Pi}(0_{u}^{+}) v = 0$ emission lifetime in solid argon. Extrapolation based on the matrix data leads to an estimate of $12 \pm 2 {\mu}s$ for the radiative lifetime of the gas phase molecule. en_US dc.format.extent 98631 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title $Br_{2} B^{3} {\Pi}(O_{u}^{+})$ EXCITATION SPECTRA AND RADIATIVE LIFETIMES IN SOLID RARE GASES en_US dc.type article en_US
