Abstract
The paper is devoted to experimental study of discharge and radiation characteristics taking place in Xe one-barrier excilamps at broad variations of excitation pulse parameters and gas fill-pressures. The B-X band of the molecule Xe2* dominates the lamp spectrum and has high efficiency. Radiation of monatomic lines and luminescence of the lamp bulb can be observed too. The molecule Xe2* band B-X radiation of luminescence time dependence and luminescence of the lamp bulb quartz are similar, at the same time the radiation of Xe monatomic line (lambda) equals 467 nm has obviously some other form. Depending on excitation conditions, i.e. power, duration and excitation impulse form, a gas discharge Xe excilamp, different by homogeneity level and radiation efficiency types of discharge can be realized. Formation of discharge homogeneity is the necessary condition to obtain high efficiencies of excimer radiation in this type of lamp. In one-barrier xenon excilamps with internal small curvature of an electrode, a homogeneous discharge forms at pressures up to 300 Torr.
