Abstract

Modeling of discharge light sources is becoming increasingly important in predicting device performance and determination of optimal regimes for their operation. A good knowledge of the elementary processes occurring under non-equilibrium conditions is a prerequisite for any model. Chemi-ionization processes involving collisions of excited atoms play a crucial role in many lighting discharges, both for low (a few torr) and higher (>10 torr) gas pressures. The understanding of such processes and their role in discharge power balance is scant, and quantitative data on the rate coefficients is inadequate. Experimental studies of chemi-ionization in collisions of metastable neon and mercury atoms were recently initiated at Brooklyn Polytechnic University. Rate coefficients for collisions between two p53s13P2 and between 2p53s13P2 and 3P1 excited neon atoms were measured using plasma electron spectroscopy. Investigation of chemi-ionization in collisions of 63P0,1,2 mercury states is under way and the intermediate results will be reported. Results of quantitative evaluation of the importance of the chemi-ionization for neon and mercury lamp modeling will also be presented.
