Quantum-Statistical Modeling of ICPs: He(I)

Volume 42, Number 7 (Oct. 1988) Page 1181-1186

Fannin, H.B.; Hurly, J.J.; Meeks, F.R.

Relative populations of excited states of He(I) in reduced-pressure ICPs have been shown to obey Fermi-Dirac statistical counting. A single thermodynamic temperature—2000 K—defines the distribution. The experimental relative populations and the Fermi-Dirac distributions agree within fractions of one percent.
