Analysis of terrestrial thermospheric N2c′41Σ+u(0) ~ b′1Σ+u(1)- X1Σ+g dayglow emission observed by the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer

Liu, Xianming; Heays, Alan N.; Shemansky, Donald E.; Lewis, Brenton R.; Feldman, Paul D.


Terrestrial thermospheric dayglow emission from the coupled and overlapping c′41Σ+u(0) and b′1Σ+u(1) levels of molecular nitrogen, observed by the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer, is analyzed with the aid of a coupled channels quantum mechanical model of N2 spectroscopy and predissociation dynamics. Model emission spectra for the mixed c′41Σ+u(0) ~ b′1Σ+u(1) − X1Σ+g(vi = 2, 6–9) transitions, calculated for the case of excitation by photoelectron impact, are in excellent agreement with...[Show more]
