Efficient energy transfer between neon excimer molecules and hydrogen has been found. A small, high gas density light source has been developed, emitting entirely on the hydrogen 2p-1s transition at 121.567 nm (Lyman-α). Light output densities of 10 W/cm2 are obtained. Electron beam energy conversion efficiencies of ≈10% have been measured.
