Some aspects of the excitation of copper lines in a hollow-cathode discharge

  • 10 Accesses

Abstract

The level population is found to contain anomalously high populations of displaced levels below the ionization limit, especially 4p′4Po. This is considered to be due to electron-ion combination. Some aspects of the excitation of copper ion lines in helium and argon are reported. Possible excitation mechanisms are discussed.
