    The influence of UV illumination on the behavior of silent electrical discharge streamers (microdischarges) in dry and humid gases (nitrogen, oxygen, air, and Ar/O[sub 2] mixtures) is presented. A commercial low-pressure mercury lamp, which was spectrally calibrated, provides UV light. The UV...

    The emission of atomic oxygen lines at 130.2 and 130.5 nm from a microhollow cathode discharge in argon with oxygen added indicates resonant energy transfer from argon dimers to oxygen atoms. The internal efficiency of the vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) radiation was measured as 0.7% for a discharge...

    Abstract. We have developed a vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) lamp at 134 nm with a quasi-point emission geometry using a quasi-continuous-wave (cw) gas jet discharge of an Ar/Kr gas mixture. We have unambiguously identified a new emission continuum centered at 134 nm as a transition of Ar-Kr...

    This investigation aims to present data of a potential light source based on Cd. Recent study of cadmium-neon direct current glow discharge at low and intermediate pressure showed that a significant fraction (∼80%) of the input power delivered to the plasma can be converted into resonance...

    Vacuum-Ultraviolet (VUV) radiation is responsible for the photo-processing of simple and complex molecules in several terrestrial and extraterrestrial environments. In the laboratory such radiation is commonly simulated by inexpensive and easy-to-use microwave-powered hydrogen discharge lamps....

    We have studied the characteristics of UV emission sources operating on low-pressure normal (H2O) and heavy (D2O) water vapor excited by periodic-pulsed and glow discharges. The emission in a 300–330 nm wavelength interval has been studied in detail for water vapor pressures ranging from...

    This paper describes the technique and the results of measurement of the power and geometry of the VUV radiation beam from a dc capillary discharge in a mixture of krypton and xenon. The angular divergence of narrowband VUV radiation of the heteronuclear KrXe* molecule is shown to be narrower as...

    The characteristics of a gas discharge in krypton (at a pressure of several atmospheres), used as a medium for lasers based on excimer transitions in the VUV region, have been calculated. It is shown that, to achieve the threshold values of excimer concentration, a high preionization level and...
