Optical spectra of binary rare-gas mixtures

S I Vavilov State Optical Institute, Birzhevaya liniya 12, St. Petersburg, 199034, Russian Federation

The results of experimental and theoretical investigations of the properties of heteronuclear rare-gas dimers are presented. Spectra in the vacuum ultraviolet region received primary emphasis. It is shown that the bulk of the excitation energy stored by the low-temperature plasma of binary mixtures is released by the heteronuclear dimers in a narrow spectral band near atomic resonance lines.
