Abstract:

The emission of neutral atomic cesium was investigated and its radiative characteristics calculated. The calculations for the prominent lines in the visible and infrared region are given. The radiant intensity of the most intense lines which occur in the near infra-red and visible region is presented. The 6p2 P32 goes to 6 s2 S12 transition as occurring at 8521.10 A constitutes the major electron transition and essentially determines the order of the total radiant energy emitted from neutral cesium gas for the temperature range considered. The integrated radiant intensity for 1000 A band widths in the near UV, visible, and near infra-red region is presented. The cesium transition probabilities are given.
