The use of rare gas resonance line lamps as sources of monochromatic radiation for photochemical studies is well known.(1-5) Argon is ideally suited for photoionization studies of the simpler hydrocarbons which have ionization potentials below 11.6 eV. It has resonance lines at 1048 Å (11.83 eV) and 1067 Å (11.62 eV), with no other emission lines between 1050 and 2000 Å when pressures less than 1 Torr are used.
