In this study we present new data on cooling of seeded (N2 and NO) helium jets prior to penetration into the bulk helium. In this case, the fine structure originating from the molecular excited states is comparable to kT and therefore the corresponding ultraviolet and visible (UV/VIS) emissions can be used to estimate the temperature of the surroundings of the molecules. Cooling down of the clusters inside the bulk helium occurred slowly, presumably due to extra heat generated by atom‐atom recombination.
