We report the results of the optical emission spectroscopy measurements of rotational Trot and translational temperature Ttr of hydrogen molecules. The light source was hollow cathode glow discharge with titanium cathode operated in hydrogen at low pressure. The rotational temperature of excited electronic states of H2 was determined either from the relative line intensities of R branch of the GK → B band or from the P, Q and R-branches of the Fulcher-α diagonal band. The population of excited energy levels, determined from the relative line intensities was used to derive rotational temperature of the ground state of hydrogen molecule.

Keywords: Optical emission spectroscopy; hydrogen molecule; rotational temperature measurement; translational temperature evaluation
