At wavelengths near the onset of absorption (λ > 200 nm), cross sections of HCl are approximately 5-10 times larger than those of DCl. These data are used to calculate rates of photodissociation of HCl and DCl in the Venusian atmosphere. For the entire wavelength region measured, the rate of photodissociation of DCl is only 16% that of HCl. The difference in rates of photodissociation contributes to the exceptionally large [D]/[H] ratio of the Venusian atmosphere 关键词: hydrogen compounds;molecule-photon collisions;photodissociation;planetary atmospheres;ultraviolet spectra;Venus;absorption cross sections;HCl;DCl;photodissociation;Venus;synchrotron light source;cross sections;135 to 232 nm
