Abstract

The spectrum of xenon was photographed in the range 350–2000 Å with 3-m normal-incidence and 10.7-m normal-incidence spectrographs. The source used in both cases was a gas-triggered spark. The Xe v spectrum was distinguished by observation of spectral changes with variation of spark current. The 5s25p2–(5s5p3 + 5s25p5d + 5s25p6s) transition array of Xe v was identified and analyzed. Calculations were carried out to assist in the analysis and to help us to interpret the results. An earlier analysis was revised and extended, and 73 lines are now classified. A value for the ionization energy of 436 700 ± 400 cm−1 was determined.
