ResumenWe present a detailed study of inelastic collisions at low temperature in several supersonic jets of N2, H2, and H2+He mixtures using different nozzles and stagnation conditions. Absolute number density and rotational population data of unprecedented accuracy are measured along the jet axis by Raman spectroscopy with high spatial resolution (<5μm) and high-sensitivity (<1 photon/sec). The experimental data are interpreted by means of a master ecuation describing the time evolution of the rotational populations in terms of the state-to-state rate coefficients derived from high-level quantum calculations. This combination of experimental and calculated data leads to a detailed understanding of the underlying physics, consistent with the assumed isentropic behaviour. The breakdown of rotational-translational thermal equilibrium, and its space-time evolution along the jet axis are accounted for by the microscopic (state-to-state rate coefficients) and macroscopic (flow velocity, number density, temperatures) physical quantities. A highly consistent picture, free from any additional parameters, bridges this way the microscopic and macroscopic approaches to fluid dynamics along the jet axis.
