- Absolute emission coefficient measurements on arc-generated uranium plasmas in local thermodynamic equilibrium are described for a wavelength bandwidth of 1050 to 6000A. Low- and high-pressure arcs were investigated for their emission properties, characteristic temperatures and uranium partial pressures. Temperatures from 5500 to 8000 K and uranium partial pressures from 0.001 to 0.01 atm were found at the arc centerline. The new emission data are compared with other similar experimental results and to existing theoretical calculations. The effects of cold-layer UF/sub 6/ photoabsorption on uranium plasma emission characteristics are established for UF/sub 6/ molecular densities ranging from 1.0 x 10/sup 16/ to 1.0 x 10/sup 17/ cm/sup -3/ and layer thickness from 1.0 to 5.0 cm.
