Effect of Laser Frequency on a Collision-Induced Radiative Process
The area of laser-induced chemistry is one which has generated an enormous amount of interest in the last few years, both experimentally and theoretically.1 In this chapter, we shall briefly review our approach to the subject and then discuss an aspect of our most recent work: how incident radiation of various frequencies affects collision-induced processes.
