Abstract

In order to investigate the emission behavior of singly ionized iron lines excited by a Grimm-type glow discharge plasma, we have compiled a wavelength table of the lines in the 160-250 nm region. Three different plasma gases (argon, neon, and argon-helium mixed gas) have been employed to compare the relative intensities of the ionic iron lines. It is found that the emission intensities of some line groups which appear in the wavelength range of less than 190 nm are especially dependent on the nature of the plasma gas employed. These excitations can be principally explained from charge transfer collisions between iron atoms and plasma gas ions.
