The metastable $4s[3/2]^{0}2$ level accounts for more than half of the 38 two photon resonant transitions whereas 10 of them originate in $4s[3/2]^{O}1$ four in $4s^{\prime}[1/2]^{O}0$ and only two in $4s^{\prime}[1/2]^{O}1$ level. The intensities of two photon optogalvanic transitions are very sensitive to changes in the incident laser power which is not the case with one photon transitions. Intensity ratios for circular to linear polarization for two photon transitions $6s^{\prime}[1/2]^{O}1 \leftarrow 4s[3/2]^{O}2 6s^{\prime}[1/2]^{O}0 \leftarrow 4s[3/2]^{O}2$ and $5d[1/2]^{O}1 \leftarrow 4s[3/2]^{O}2 5d[1/2]^{O}0 \leftarrow 4s[3/2]^{O}2$ are quite different from other two photon transitions. This has been explained as due to near one photon resonance of $4p^{\prime}[3/2]1$ level for the first pair and $4p^{\prime}[1/2]1$ for the second pair of transitions. en_US dc.format.extent 63739 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title LASER OPTOGALVANIC SPECTROSCOPY OF Fe-Ar HOLLOW CATHODE LAMP IN WAVELENGTH REGION 605-740nm en_US dc.type article en_US
