Abstract

The luminescence spectrum of the 3He - Xe - Cd mixture in the wavelength range 350-830 nm is studied at a gas temperature 250-600°C. The mixture was excited by the products of the nuclear reaction 3He(n, p)T. The mechanism of population of Cdl levels is discussed and the rate constant of the charge exchange of Xe2+ ions with cadmium atoms is estimated as k ∼ 1013 cm3 s-1.
