Abstract

A series of spectroscopic studies of emissions from microhollow cathode discharges (MHCD) in the rare gases Xe, Ar, and Ne as well as in molecular nitrogen were and air were performed. It aims to elucidate the basic collision and relaxation processes in a MHCD and to obtain a rudimentary understanding of the electron, neutral and ion temperatures in MHCDs under various operating conditions. The MHCD is mounted directly on the entrance slit of either a high resolution visible/ultraviolet (UV) monochromator or a medium resolution vacuum UV (VUV) monochromator equipped with appropriately chosen photon detectors.
