Paper Abstract

The problem of the anomalously rapid decay rate of the principal radiative transition in interpreting expansion cooled recombination lasers is examined. The radiative transfer of the line is analyzed, and it is shown that, in typical situations, the net radiative bracket may be sufficiently larger than the commonly used planar escape factor to account for this discrepancy. The role of doubly excited states in the recombination cascade is also examined.
