Impact of Stark Shifts on the Radiation Cooling of Cu-Dominated Plasmas
Keywords:Cu plasmas, Stark effect, radiation cooling, radiative transfer equation, spectroscopy
AbstractWe study the impact of Stark line shifts reported recently for Cu I transitions on the radiative cooling of Cu-dominated plasmas. The observed detuning in absorption between the hot core and cold shell of the arc leads to a reduction in radiation reabsorption compared to the case where Stark line shifts are neglected. Using a modeling based on a phenomenological treatment of the Stark line shift, we show that this reduction is below 2%.
