Modified Fowler–Milne method for the spectroscopic determination of thermal plasma temperature without the measurement of continuum radiation

Ma, Shuiliang; Gao, Hongming; Wu, Lin


A technique based on the Fowler-Milne method for the spectroscopic determination of thermal plasma temperatures without measuring continuum radiation is presented. This technique avoids the influence of continuum radiation with the combined line and continuum emission coefficients to derive the plasma temperatures. The amount of continuum emission coefficient is estimated by using an expression related to the Biberman factors. Parameters that affect the accuracy of the proposed technique and...[Show more]
