Abstract

The experimental conditions for, and the characteristics and origin of the recently found Ne continuum are described. The 600 A band and the continuum of helium were reinvestigated in relation to the diffuse bands and continua of the other rare gases. It is suggested that both probably originate from the transition A1u+X1g+ of He2, because of the similarity of their characteristics to those of the resonance lines and continua of the other rare gases, Ne included.
