Excitation Models Used in the Electron Beam Fluorescence Technique
The model proposed by Coe et al. for electron beam excitation of nitrogen is discussed and simplified in a way that facilitates its further application to a larger range of experimental conditions, without affecting its validity in the range where it has proved to be successful. Application of the model to relatively high temperatures and to situations involving secondary processes is made possible.
