Paper Abstract

The influence of HBr admixture on the electron energy distribution function in discharges in mixtures of neon and copper vapor was studied. The Boltzman kinetic equation was solved by a numeric method with some approximations. It is shown that admixture of HBr can lead to significant deformations of the electron energy distribution function. Rates of excitation of Cu resonance and metastable levels were also determined using the calculated electron energy distribution functions. It was confirmed that the changes of electron energy distribution functions caused by the HBr admixture can improve conditions for population inversion formation on transitions from resonance to metastable levels of Cu atom.
