COMMENTS: High temperature pyrolysis of SiCl4-Ar mixtures has been studied behind reflected shock waves

Using time-resolved absorption profiles at 121.6 nm and a detailed reaction model, the absorption cross sections of SiCl4, SiCl3, and SiCl2 have been measured

The temperature dependence of the absorption cross sections of SiCl2 at 2082 to 2415 K can be expressed as

σ = 6.36×10-11 exp(-7.1×10-3 × T) cm2 molecule-1
