Abstract:

Collisional radiative process between metastable state He and ground state N2 has investigated through two separate experiments gainabsorption in electron-beam excited HeN2 gas mixtures, and change of He metastable density in the presence of external photon flux. No net gain was observed in HeN2 system as it was presumably overwhelmed by the background absorption. However, the preliminary results of our He metastable density measurement gives strong evidence for existence of collisional radiative process. Author
