Collisional energy transfer from excited polyatomic molecules produced by infrared multiple photon absorption

A simple energy-grained master equation was used to model data on the multiphoton dissocn. of CF2HCl as a function of laser fluence and Ar bath-gas pressure. Information on energy transfer from vibrationally excited CF2HCl was obtained from an anal. of the competition between laser pumping and collisional energy removal using suitable parametrizations of the laser intensity and the collision process.
