Abstract

The internal energy distribution of OH radicals desorbing from a polycrystalline Pt surface at 1130 K was measured by laser-induced fluorescence at pressures near collisionless conditions. Both the rotational and vibrational temperatures are equal to that of the Pt, suggesting that the rate of energy randomization of OH with the surface is greater than the rate of desorption.
