Surface light-induced drift caused by backscattering from rough surfaces can be strongly affected by surface-enhanced state-specific chemical reactions. Expressions for the drift fluxes of the incident resonant-gas component and of the reaction product are presented. A resulting asymmetry in the spatial distributions of the components in a ssT-shaped enclosure is discussed, as a possible sensitive tool for studying the state specificity of the scattering and reaction processes.
