Abstract : The general objectives of this research project are to study collisional excitation of atoms and molecules and the radiation emitted by these excited atoms and molecules. Our major efforts include electron excitation of the sodium and xenon atoms, excitation of electronic states of nitrogen molecules, formation of excited nitrogen atoms by electron-impact dissociation of nitrogen molecules, Measurement of electron excitation cross sections of metastable levels of neon atoms, excitation of atoms by H+, H0, H- impact.
