Abstract

Abstract Calculated in (Kirillov, 2014) constants are applied for simulations of vibrational populations of Herzberg states in mixtures of O2 with CO2, CO, N2 gases for laboratory conditions. Results show very important role of electronic-vibrational processes in redistribution of electronic excitation energy among vibrational levels. It is shown that the interaction between O2(A′3Δu) and O2 causes effective production O2(c1Σu−,v=0) observed in laboratory conditions. The inclusion of the interaction between O2(A′3Δu) and CO2 molecules may explain high intensities of Herzberg II system observed in laboratory experiments with high CO2 concentrations and registered in the nightglow of Venusian atmosphere.
