Paper Abstract

The high-temperature capillary arc discharge (HTCAD) is suggested as reference source for calibrating radiation in the far VUV - soft X-ray spectral range. Plasma radiation intensities in the ion CIV lines in visible and UV spectral regions have been determined for HTCAD with the pyrographite capillary, 0.22 cm I.D.,and 0.6 cm in length, at current pulse duration t=30 mcs, electron density ne=6.1017 cm-3 and temperature T=380000 K. The emitting zones are located in the anode and cathode plasma jets flowing in the vacuum chamber pumped down to pressure of 0.1 Pa. The spectra have been recorded in short-wave TIT V spectral range. The ion CIV lines are shown to be optically thin and the radiation intensities in spectral lines 22.3 and 25.9 nm have been measured by the method of pair of lines with the common upper level.
