Detection of Rubidium (Rb85 & Rb87) ionized by Ultra-Violet light


Photo-ions of rubidium were generated due to the interaction of effusive Rbatomic beam with the C.W. UV lamp of 2.5 KW power. The photo-ions isotopicof (Rb85 & Rb87 ) were extracted and analyzed by a quadruple mass filter. Themeasured photo-ion current was 28 x 10-13 Amp.
