I was trying to understand electronic excitation in Xenon. Most of the research journals are denoting different excitation levels in terms of Paschen notation, which i think, is generally used to represent excited states of inert gases. Can someone please explain how to use this paschen notation ?? Kindly help!!!!!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
