Paper Abstract

Results are presented on the experimental study of VUV spectra of krypton excited by a dc discharge in a capillary tube with the wall cooled to the temperature of liquid nitrogen. We studied the 120-200 nm spectral region corresponding to the transitions between the dimer lowest excited states and the weakly bound ground state, 1u, 0u+ yields 0g+. Electron impact, transferring dimers from the ground state into the excited state, is shown to be an efficient excitation mechanism in the 50-650 Torr and the 10-50 mA pressure and current ranges. The spectra obtained and the calculations made corroborate the high rate of this process.
