Collisional quenching of internally excited atoms and molecules at cold and ultracold temperatures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Quantum mechanical calculations of collisional quenching cross sections and rate coefficients for various internally excited atoms and molecules at cold and ultracold temperatures are presented. The efficiencies of relaxation for vibrationally, rotationally, and electronically excited states are given and in each case the dominant decay mechanisms are discussed.
