Abstract

We report here an experimental study of depopulation mechanisms of the Cs2(E) state. By combining ratios of atomic to molecular fluorescence with E state lifetimes obtained by the phase shift technique, all studied as a function of Cs density, we were able to obtain absolute values for predissociation, radiative, and collisional depopulation rates as well as the total quenching rates for the Cs2(E) state. The results are discussed in relation to those of other experiments.
