Abstract:

The primary goal of the EXCEDE III Excitation by Electron Deposition atmospheric energy deposition experiment was to monitor the spatial distribution of the energy deposition profile produced by the approx. 18 Ampere approx. 2.5 keV electron beam. During the rocket flight on April 27, 1990, prompt emission at 3914 A from the N2 1N 0-0 transition were measured by a UV scanning photometer. We have inverted the intensity profiles to obtain profiles of energy deposition by the beam. EXCEDE III, N2 IN, 3914 A, Electron Beam, Atmospheric Deposition, Artificial Aurora, Scanning Photometer.
