Vibrationally "hot" valence luminescence of nitric oxide in neon matrixes

Emission from the valence levels B2P (v = 3-5) of NO embedded in Ne crystals following excitation of the Rydberg level A 2S+ (v = 2) by synchrotron radiation is reported. A 2-step process combining bubble formation around the Rydberg state and Rydberg->valence energy transfer is invoked in order to account for these emissions. [on SciFinder (R)]
