    Notes: X-ray diodes driven by repetitively pulsed Blumleins have been shown to be able to deliver high dose rates of x rays in pulses of nanosecond duration. Reported here is a study of the scaling of such devices conducted to isolate the primary factors limiting performance. Low residual gas pressure in the output diode together with the critical alignment of the electrodes were found essential for enhanced output. Optimizations served to increase the x-ray yield by an order of magnitude and the resulting performance is reported. At the output window, dose rates exceeding 1.4 kR min−1 were obtained in nanosecond pulses from the finished device of table top size at a charging voltage of 30 kV and a pulse repetition rate of 50 Hz.

    Notes: A capillary discharge has been developed to produce pulses of intense soft x-ray radiation of tens of nanoseconds duration. The soft x-ray photons were emitted in a plasma column resulting from polyethylene in capillary wall ablation. The spectrum was dominated by the C IV, C V, and C VI emission lines in the soft x-ray spectral range. The experimental value of the electrical circuit inductance has been measured and compared to the calculated one. The electron temperature was estimated to be higher than 50 eV from the plasma resistivity measurement. The time dependence of the electron density outside the capillary channel has been determined using spectroscopic measurement in the visible range. The time dependence of the electron temperature has been determined from the intensity ratio of C V and C VI emission lines, using a collisional radiative equilibrium code. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Notes: A powerful, compact, and repetitive flash x-ray system based on a cable transformer technology powered by ceramic capacitors in a Blumlein-like configuration has been developed. Open circuit voltages in excess of 100 kV can be achieved while commutation occurs at low voltage (〈20 kV). The x-ray emission from a low impedance x-ray diode with a hollow cathode configuration was observed under a wide range of experimental conditions. The critical parameters limiting the flash x-ray performances are mainly the pressure in the x-ray diode and the anode–cathode space. This true table top device is able to produce doses up to 1 R per shot, measured at the output window, of x-rays between 5 and 100 keV. The pulse widths were about 20 ns and the maximum repetition rate was about 60 Hz. Operation is possible in air or in other gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, H2, N2) at pressures varying from 10−3 mbar for xenon to about 1 mbar for helium. © 1997 American Institute of Physics.

    Notes: Good understanding of the different phases of the plasma-chemistry involved is essential for the development of nonthermal plasma technologies for pollution control. These techniques are often based on the dissociation of parent gases to produce radicals that, in turn, decompose the toxic compounds. Our research concerns OH radical production in a pulsed dielectric barrier discharge (DBD). OH[A 2Σ+–X 2Π(0,0)] emission in argon-water vapor gas mixtures has been studied. Particular attention has been paid to the influence of water vapor partial pressure on the lifetime and intensity of emitted fluorescence in order to develop a pulsed DBD ultraviolet light source for spectroscopic investigation. This source was used to perform OH(X 2Π) time-resolved average absolute density measurements in other DBD discharges based on resonant absorption spectroscopy. This diagnostic has been validated in argon and air-water vapor mixtures. The temporal behavior of the density OH(X 2Π) radicals after a pulse discharge has been studied in argon and air with and without 500 ppm of trichloroethylene. This simple and inexpensive tool, compared to more sophisticated laser absorption or laser-induced fluorescence measurements for plasma investigation, is very useful for characterizing the OH radical potential for pollutant oxidation. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.

    Notes: In this work, we report the study of afterglow plasmas with initial electron density over 1015 cm−3 excited by repetitive 3 kA, 7 ns duration discharges in He–H2 mixtures with helium pressure in the range 310–760 Torr and partial pressure of hydrogen from 20 to 400 mTorr. The afterglow radiation was emitted in He2 transitions as well as in atomic hydrogen spectral lines, with Lα being particularly intense. The ground state H concentration was estimated from the profile of the self-absorbed Lα line, indicating that dissociation of hydrogen occurs mainly in the afterglow by electron–ion recombination. He (2 3S) destruction frequencies have been determined from measurements of the optical absorption of the 2 3S→3 3P helium transition and were analyzed in terms of rate coefficients for various quenching processes. Among these, the Penning reaction with atomic hydrogen was found to be important.

    Notes: This work reports the characterization of late time periods in the decay of metastable He(2 3S) atoms produced in 1–4 atm of helium containing up to 1400 mTorr of N2. Results have been obtained that exploit the large dynamic range and high data acquisition rates available from time resolved spectroscopic studies of preionized stripline discharges. A new value was found for the termolecular reaction of (2 3S) with N2 of 1.5×10−31 cm6 s−1 that is in good agreement with a model of collisionally induced capture. An indirect channel of reaction was also found that seems to explain the anomalously rapid and conflicting termolecular rates that were previously reported.

    Notes: This work focuses upon previously encountered problems that have impeded the understanding of the role of He2(3Σu) metastable molecules in the afterglows of electrical discharges into atmospheric pressures of helium containing admixtures of reactants. New data are reported that generally confirm the literature values for the reactivities of this species at high pressures and continue the disagreement with earlier measurements in low pressure plasmas. Results are presented for reactions with HCl and HBr for the first time. A study of systematic dependencies of rates upon molecular parameters is reported which shows that the ratio for bimolecular reactions of vibrationally excited and unexcited He2(3Σu) molecules is largely independent of the identity of the reacting partner. This provides a means for using data on the pressure dependent part of the effective rate of reaction of He(2 3S) atoms to estimate the rate coefficients for the bimolecular reactions of the more elusive He2(3Σu) molecule.

    Notes: This work reports the measurements of rate coefficients for excitation transfer reactions of metastable He(2 3S) atoms, produced in 0.3–4 atm of helium, with various reactants presenting a wide range of characteristics. In all cases studied, three-body reaction channels were identified with most probable values of rate coefficients lying in the range from 0.2 to 6.7×10−31 cm6 s−1, for Ne and N2O, respectively. These are generally more than one order of magnitude smaller than previously reported. The interpretation of this discrepancy in terms of a more reactive intermediate He2(Σ*) complex in dynamic equilibrium with the He(2 3S) population seems to be confirmed, and is analyzed in some detail.

    Notes: The first Rydberg states of the Ar+2 molecular ion dissociating into Ar+(3p5,2P) +Ar*(3p54s,3,1P) are calculated using multireference configuration interaction and effective core pseudopotentials. At long internuclear distance, their electronic structure is shown to be determined by resonance interaction and the magnitude of the Rydberg electron-transfer integral, inducing long-distance wells with De in the range 0.6–0.8 eV around Re(approximately-equal-to)9.0a0. In the short distance range, the electronic structure can be understood as resulting from an ionic Ar++ core with an outer Rydberg electron, and bound or quasibound Rydberg states are obtained around Re∼4a0. The fluorescence spectra of those states are simulated and the possible intervention of the Ar+2 system in the third continuum spectrum is considered.
