dc.description.abstractLaser enhanced ionization (LEI), otherwise know as the opicogalvanic effect, occurs when light from a tunable dye laser excites atoms or molecules in a flame or glow $discharge_{1}$ to higher-lying electronic states and collisional ionization follows. The spectrum which is recorded is the resulting change in the conductivity of the medium as a function of the wavelength of the incident light. This change is either positive or negative, depending upon the characteristics of excited state and the experimental conditions. We have obtained opticogalvanic spectra of the (0, 0) band of the $B^{3}\Pi - X^{3}\Delta$ transition of titanium monoxide in a non flame medium. The TiO molecules were generated in a glow discharge by sputtering Ti and $TiO_{2}$ from the inner surface of a hollow cathode composed of a highly compressed (1500 P. s. i.) mixture of these substances. Argon was used as the supporting gas. The rotational temperature of the discharge during this process is apparently high enough to prevent the formation of the band heads expected for $TiO^{2,3}$. Instead, at this resolution, the spectrum consists of intense deffuse features extending from $\sim 6148-6280A$.en_US
