Effect of an external periodic field on the rate of chemical reactions

  • E. S. Savin


The rates of direct and concert passages of nuclei through a potential barrier in an external periodic field were determined within a generalized Slater model of thermal dissociation of multiatomic molecules. The external field accelerated direct and — to a much greater degree — concert passages. The curves of the efficiency of the concert mechanism of the chemical reaction as a function of the field amplitude were estimated.
