Abstract

Narrowband UV and VUV excimer radiation can be generated in a variety of nonequilibrium gas discharges: dielectric barrier discharges, microhollow cathode discharges, arrays of microplasmas, corona discharges. Excimer lamps (excilamps) are now available for a large number of wavelengths and in various geometrical shapes. The availability of nearly monochromatic photon fluxes ranging in energy up to 15 eV resulted in a number of innovative photo-induced processes in photophysics, photochemistry and photobiology. This report focuses on progress made in the last decade.
