We studied the luminescence of molecular nitrogen nanoclusters containing stabilized nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, and deuterium atoms. Optical spectra were observed during the destruction of these ensembles of nanoclusters accompanied by a rapid release of chemical energy stored in the samples. Several interesting features were observed including a broad band near λ ≈ 360 nm, which was identified as emission corresponding to 2Ag→1Ag transition of N4(D2h) polymeric nitrogen. Also the sharp lines at λ ∼ 336 and 473 nm were observed, and their assignments to ND radicals are discussed.
