Abstract : An experimental arrangement is described that was designed for the detection of vacuum uv photons generated by stimulated two-photon emission and by Raman scattering from metastable deuterium atoms. A collimated beam of metastables is produced by charge exchange between cesium vapor and 5 keV deuterons. A pulsed Nd-glass laser is used for the stimulation. The generated 1373 A photons are detected at the exit slit of a spectrometer. Single photon counting techniques are employed. The first observation of singly-stimulated two-photon emission from a metastable atom is reported. The results are compared with the calculation of W. Zernik. (Author)
