Abstract
We present a new method for lifetime measurements of excited copper halides formed by reactive collosion of a metastable 2D copper atom with a halogen compound. The method is applied for excited states in CuF, CuCl and CuBr, including high vibrational levels. Additionally, the molecular constants for the [MATH] and a new [MATH] states in CuBr are reported.
