Abstract:

Stable, glow discharges in pure sulfur and He-sulfur have been achieved for the first time, at operating temperatures between 0C and 250C. This result indicates that S8 is broken directly into S2 and means that temperatures much less than 600C can be used. The S2 B-X band emission is observed in great detail, and through analysis of these spectra the ground electronic state constants have been determined to the fourth order.
