Etude de microdécharges comme source de rayonnement ultraviolet intense

Abstract : Bacteriological decontamination of surfaces by pulsed light is a society issue that requires the development of new tools. A technique that proved its efficiency was to use a pulsed light in the 200-280 wavelength range corresponding to the DNA absorption band.In this work, we studied two different sources, the so-called Dielectric Barrier Discharge (DBD) and microdischarges arrays, to generate a radiation at 222 nm corresponding to the KrCl* exciplex emission. By using nanosecond pulsed discharges, we demonstrated that many microdischarges operating in parallel can be triggered simultaneously without introducing any resistive ballast. High speed ICCD imaging and time resolved spectroscopic studies had shown that all the microdischarges were initiated in less than 5 ns, which allowed the produce arrays of microdischarges generating high peak power of UV light. In the DBD case, studies have coupled experience and simulation which allowed us to determine the key steps of the kinetic pathways and to predict the best conditions for producing an intense 222 nm radiation. Moreover, microdischarges were also used to realize a VUV source to probe the atomic chlorine density in plasma etching reactors through resonance absorption spectroscopy.
