Plasma Spectroscopy

Takashi Fujimoto


This book presents a theoretical framework of plasma spectroscopy, in which the observed spectral line intensities or the populations of excited levels of atoms or ions immersed in plasma are interpreted in terms of the characteristics of the plasma. Following a review of important atomic processes in plasma, the rate equation governing the populations in excited levels and the ground state is solved in the collisional-radiative model. In this model, plasmas are classified into the ionizing plasma and the recombining plasma. Various features of these plasmas are examined. Ionization and recomb ... More

Keywords: emission line intensity, population distribution, collisional-radiative model, ionizing plasma, recombining plasma, ionization balance, continuum radiation, line broadening, radiation transport, dense plasma
