Abstract

This report presents the numerical results from the GLOMAC model, showing the variation in fluorescent lamp operating characteristics as the rate constants for ionization in collisions of 63P atoms are varied. The notable dependencies observed illustrate the need for more accurate experimental data. Direct experimental observation of the collisional processes is hampered by the difficulty of optically exciting the 63P0.2 levels directly from the ground state. A novel experimental approach to the measurement of absolute collisional ionization cross-sections, based on a radio frequency ion trap, is proposed.
