Abstract:

High energy electron beam collisions with N2 have been used to produce various fluorescent emission systems, the intensities of which were investigated over the approximate pressure range of 0.1 to 2.0 torr at both 300 and 94 K. Specifically, the intensities of the N2 first negative system, the 493.5-nm N line, and the 500.5-nm N line were observed as a function of N2 pressure, and the results were used to determine the quenching rate constants for these excited electronic states.
