Paper Abstract

Measurements of optical spectra of surfaces undergoing bombardment by N2 and N2+ jfl an ultrahigh vacuum environment provide information related to the origin of spacecraft glow and erosion. This work is complimentary to other measurements also carried out in our laboratory in which we utilize 0 and 0+ beams . These. efforts are part of a broad program whose goal is the understanding of interactions between surfaces and low-energy charged and neutral particles. 1.
