Abstract:

Contents Photons and electrons in air, including studies on the photoelectric effect, Compton and Klein-Nishina scatter, pair formation, transmission of games in finite air slabs, buildup factors, stopping power of gases for electrons, primary and secondary electrons, subexcitation electrons, rate of energy loss of slow electrons, excitation by electrons, rate of energy loss of slow electrons, excitation by electr s, and onization by electrons Photons in air, including studies on resonance charge transfer, electron capture into excited states, total electron capture cross section, excitation and ionization by proton impact, equilibrium fraction of H plus - H beam, stopping power of gases, mean energy per ion pair, ionization rates, excitation and ionization by neutral hydrogen, impact, and total loss cross sections for H Radiative phenomenon, pertaining to fluorescence efficiencies, night airglow, and aurorae Potential wells of atmospheric gases, including important fractures of the diatomic molecule, the Morse function, the Morse diagrams of O2, N2, and NO, lifetimes of the mestastable states, selection rules for radioactive transitions, the Franck-Condon principle, and the non-crossing rule.
