A uniquely practical book, this monograph is the first to describe basic and applied spectroscopic techniques for the study of physical processes in high frequency, electrodeless discharge lamps. Special attention is given to the construction and optimization of these lamps, a popular source of line spectra and an important tool in ultraprecise optical engineering. Highlights include discussions of:
Introduction. General Characteristics of High-Frequency Electrodeless Spectral Lamps. Modeling of Processes in the Plasma of High-Frequency Light Sources. Spectral Characteristics of the Optical radiation. Intensity Fluctuations of Emitted Spectral Lines. Determination of the Quantity of the Working Element in Spectral Lamps; Methods of Dosage. Precise Measurement of Pressure in High-Frequency Electrodeless Spectral Lamps. Creation of Highly-Stable and Reliable Electrodeless Spectral Lamps. Some Problems in Designing of Light Sources Based on High-Frequency Electrodeless Lamps. Measurement of the Optical Line Shift and Broadening. Polarization Spectroscopy of High Frequency Discharges.
