A review of rate coefficients relevant to HF laser kinetics modeling is presented. The literature has been surveyed from the last published review in 1983 to the present. Updated HF Einstein emission coefficients are tabulated. Rate coefficients are categorized according to their role in the HF laser model: HF generation, reactive quenching, self-relaxation, energy transfer, vibrational relaxation by atoms and molecules, dissociation, and F atom recombination. In addition, a review of recent experiments and theoretical calculations relevant to the role of rotational nonequilibrium in HF lasers is presented. A list of recommended temperature dependent expressions for critical reaction rate coefficients is given.
