Excitation of higher levels of singly charged copper ions in argon and neon glow discharges

Author affiliations

Abstract

Transition rate diagrams of copper ions in argon and neon glow discharges are presented, using data from Cu II emission spectra. Based on the transition rate diagrams, several different collisional processes between ground state and metastable atoms and ions of copper and the discharge gas are proposed as probably significant for populating upper levels of the Cu II emission lines observed.
