Abstract

An inexpensive, simple, and versatile hollow cathode lamp has been developed which produces intense ion resonance radiation of about 1 mW into 4π/25 sr. The lamp employs flowing helium gas to sustain the discharge. The construction permits a variety of cathode seed materials to be easily interchanged. The same lamp has been used as a source of ion resonance radiation for Ca, Ba, Zn, Mg, Sr, Yb, and Eu.
