Abstract

Intense atomic lines (O, N, S, C, Br, Cl, H, Se, Kr) have been produced by microwave excitation of mixtures of various gases in helium under flow conditions. The intensities generally obtained are greater than 1014 quanta/sec and are suitable for atomic emission studies and as photochemical light sources in the vacuum uv. Conditions for producing these high purity line sources are discussed.
