Energy Transfer and Superradiance Between Two High Temperature Carbon or Nitrogen Plasmas

B. A. Norton
Published Online: 2014-06-02 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/zna-1975-0223


Efficient superradiant wavelength conversion and focus-sing in the vacuum UV region below 300 Å is described for Carbon and Nitrogen plasmas. In this scheme a plasma containing predominantly Helium-like ions is pumped with optically thick resonance radiation from Hydrogen-like ions in a neighbouring plasma of higher temperature. Such a two-plasma system could exist in the earth's atmosphere, or in the laboratory by irradiating a suitable target with a high-powered laser. The power requirements in the latter case are within present capabilities.
