The molecular luminescence band appearing in the 445-510-nm region on excitation of a Kr-Xe mixture by the α particles of polonium 210 as well as by the products of nuclear reaction 3He(n,p)T has been investigated. Radiation at the transition of the heteronuclear ionic molecule (KrXe)+ has a high excitation efficiency and is observed in a temperature range from -100 to +600°C. The kinetics of the processes in the Kr-Xe mixture and the possibility of using radiation with λ ∼ 490 nm in radioactive light sources are considered.
