Line profiles in a neon glow plasma Stansfield, Barry Lionel


A new experimental technique has been developed for the determination of absorption line profiles in steady-state plasmas. The method involves observing the total transmitted line intensity of one component of the longitudinal Zeeman pattern from a background source. The frequency shift of this line is determined from the known magnetic field and the Landé g-factors involved. The light from the background source is amplitude modulated by a chopping wheel, and the intensity of the transmitted light is measured with a phase-sensitive detector.
