Collisioninduced fundamental band of H _{2} in H _{2}He and H _{2}Ne mixtures at different temperatures
Abstract
The collisioninduced fundamental infrared absorption band of hydrogen in binary mixtures H _{2}He and H _{2}Ne at 77, 195, 273, and 298 K has been studied with absorption path lengths of 27 and 105 cm for gas densities up to 530 amagat for several base densities of hydrogen. In each of these mixtures the enhancement absorption profiles show, in addition to the usual splitting of the Q branch into the main Q_{P} and Q_{R} components, a splitting of the S(1) line into the S_{P}(1) and S_{R}(1) components at all the experimental temperatures and a secondary splitting of the main Q_{P} component into the Q_{P}(3) and Q_{R}(3) components at 273 and 298 K. The profiles of H _{2}He at 77 K also show a splitting of the S(0) line into S_{P}(0) and S_{R}(0). Integrated absorption coefficients were measured and binary and ternary absorption coefficients were derived. Van Kranendonk's theory of the 'exponential4' model for the induced dipole moment was applied to the experimental binary absorption coefficients. The quadrupolar parts of these coefficients were calculated from the known molecular parameters and were then subtracted from the experimental values to obtain the overlap parts. The overlap parameters λ and ρ, giving respectively the magnitude and range of the overlap moment, were determined for each of the mixtures by obtaining the best fit of the calculated overlap part of the binary absorption coefficient as a function of temperature to the experimental values of the overlap parts. The values of λ, ρ, and μ(σ) (the overlap induced dipole moment at the LennardJones intermolecular diameter σ) are as follows:
