Paper Abstract

Till now the limited feasibilities of the traditional sources of molecular spectra did not allow one to obtain sufficiently complete information about irradiational spectra of a great number of practically significant molecules, in particular, diatomic oxides, fluorides and chlorides of metals. The search and investigation of the characteristics of new sources of molecular spectra, which allow carrying out the selective excitation of some definite molecules with minimum amount of spectral lines, seem to be perspective. The surface of a solid body being bombarded by keV ions in vacuum can be regarded as one of such sources. As a result of the bombarding the sputtered particles of the material of the target escape the surface, and the part of the excited particles emits the electromagnetic radiation while escaping the surface.
