Abstract

We present a relatively simple method by which the amount of self-absorption in laboratory-produced plasmas can be evaluated. As an illustration we apply it here to the evaluation of self-absorption in a U i resonance transition from a hollow-cathode-generated plasma. The method can be generalized to include more-complex situations.
