Abstract

A novel scheme for low pressure discharge lamps is explored. Rather than the commonly used mercury based fluorescent lamps, the use of molecular radiators emitting light in the UV or directly in the visible region is proposed. A lamp based on InBr is shown to emit light in the desired wavelength regime. LIF measurements, revealing the molecular and atomic kinetics, help to understand the underlying discharge mechanisms.
