Abstract

Fluorescence from colliding excited-state Ba and Tl atoms has been observed from a hot-metal-vapor cell. This emission, termed radiative collisional fluorescence, was at a wavelength corresponding to the sum of the energies of the thermally excited electronic states of the colliding species and had an intensity approaching that of blackbody radiation at the 1700°C cell temperature.
