Abstract

The rotational energy distribution of OH(υ=0) from the reaction O(1D) + H2 OH(X2Π. υ. J) + Π has been determined and found to be close to distributions predicted by information theory and trajectory calculations. The O(1D) atom was generated by the photodissociation of O3 at 266 nm and the OH(υJ) detected by laser-induced fluorescence.
