A method of measuring the efficiency of converting nuclear energy into optical energy was developed based on correlations between intensities of the research line and the nitrogen second positive system in an Ar-N2 mixture. In addition, the values of the coefficient of the conversion of nuclear energy into radiation at the lines of a Hg triplet in mixtures of -Hg and Kr-Hg were determined. The values measured correspond to a selectiveness of pumping of 73S1 that was close to 1 (δ=0.8±0.2).
