Abstract:

A set of electron impact excitation rate coefficients for the low lying metastable states of O, N, O, and N are presented. These rates are obtained using recent and more accurate cross sections. These species play an important role in the emission, deionization processes and communication problems of a disturbed atmosphere. Author
