Abstract

The spectrum of argon, krypton, and xenon excited by a repetitive condenser discharge method has been studied in the near infra-red region. The use of this method of excitation and a large infra-red spectrograph using a lead sulfide detector reveals about 170 new lines in these gases. About three-fourths of the lines are classified by known terms of the normal atom.

Some anomalies of spectra excited by the repetitive condenser discharge method are mentioned.
