Abstract

The spectrum of light in the range 350–800 nm emitted by pure tritium gas (T2) in a closed optical cell with no external excitation has been recorded photographically and by single-photon counting. Prominent in the spectrum are the Balmer series of atomic tritium, lines of 3He that grow with time, and the T2 ultraviolet continuum.
