Abstract:

Several scaling generalizations for a pulsed CO EDL are presented and discussed. Quantum efficiency is shown to be mainly dependent upon total energy deposition as a function of time. Typically, turn-on occurs after approximately Jlitertorr has been deposited, and steady state after approximately 2 Jliter torr. Scaled saturation intensity is approximately 0.6 - 6.0 Wsq cmtorr squared.
