An investigation was made of the spectral distribution of the absolute intensity of the afterglow of tellurium vapor. Measurements were made using a high-temperature flash photolysis system at a tellurium vapor pressure of 0.23 Torr, a xenon pressure of 20 Torr, and a cell temperature of 950 °K. The afterglow was attributed to the photorecombination of tellurium atoms in the ground state 3P0,1,2. ... [Show full abstract] An estimate was obtained of the lower limit of the photorecombination coefficient which was found to be 2.65×10−16 cm3·molecules−1·sec−1.
