Abstract

In the recent years, great progress in development of spontaneous UV and VUV sources, radiating on the transitions of excimer and exciplex molecules has been achieved. However, practical use of sealed-off excilamps is limited by low lifetime of gas mixture. In this paper, stability of output parameters of the excilamps pumped by glow, barrier and capacitive discharges is studied and the mechanism of chlorine losses in low pressure halogen containing excilamps made of quartz is determined.
