Optics and Spectroscopy


An original variant of an electronic device is described, which can be used for gamma-process selection under ionized gas conditions. The device is based on a Hanley and Schaffernicht electron gun. Selection of photons and metastable atoms is performed by a quartz tube located in axial symmetry with the primary electron gun. The desired signal is measured from the flow of secondary electrons emitted from Al, Pt, Ag, and Au surfaces under the action of resonant photons radiated from the levels Hg(63P1) and Hg(61P1). For γ=2537 Å the following values were obtained for γph 9.1, 3.8, 1.1, 0.25. Analogous values of γph for λ=1850 Å were equal to 45.5, 10.8, 6.5, 3.2. The γph values are in units of 10−4.
