Paper Abstract

Excimer formation in dense gas targets is studied using a 10 to 20 keV electron beam for the excitation of rare gases. A SiNx ceramic foil, only 300 nm thick but strong and completely vacuum tight is used as an entrance window. The electrons loose only 4 to 6% of their energy in this foil. The low electron energy allows a table top setup without high voltage or x-ray radiation hazards. First applications of the system for excimer physics research and the development of novel vacuum ultraviolet light sources are described.
