Abstract

The aim of this work is to show that micro-wave discharges in rare gases, can be an efficient windowless VUV photon source for planetary atmospheric photochemistry experiments. In this context, we perform a microwave discharge (surfatron) in a neon gas flow. We characterize the VUV photon flux emitted in different conditions, when working in the mbar pressure range, and compare it to synchrotron VUV fluxes also used for similar applications.
