Paper Abstract

A physical model of time, temperature, composition, and wavelength-dependent optical absorption behavior of e-beam pumped Ne/Xe/NF3(F2) plasmas is developed and discussed. A data correlation based on the progressive analysis of results pertaining to increasingly complex mixtures is developed. Comparisons of the derived model with medium absorption data are presented and discussed. Where useful, data relating to fluorescence efficiency and medium gain are used to further develop aspects of the model left obscure by the available data relating to medium absorption.
