Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The luminescence excited upon the discharge of molecular gases O 2, N2O, and CO onto a Zn2SiO4-Mn crystalline phosphor surface prefilled with oxygen atoms is studied. An interpretation of this phenomenon in terms of the model of acceleration of the surface heterogeneous recombination of oxygen atoms in the appearing adsorption layer of oxygen-containing molecules O2, N2O, and CO by the exchange-association mechanism is given.
