The total attenuation cross-section of Rg (3P2) (Rg = Ar, Kr) by the collision with CF3Br is measured as a function of the magnetic sub level MJ of Rg (3P2) and the collision energy. For Ar (3P2), the attenuation process indicates a MJ dependence, in particular, the cross-section of the MJ = 0 state is lower compared with that for other states. On the other hand, Kr (3P2) shows no MJ dependent attenuation.
