This tool performs collision radiative modeling of Argon to predict the emission intensities for the specified input temperatures, pressure and number densities. Excitation, relaxation, ionization, recombination, diffusion to the electrode walls, spontaneous emission, and radiation trapping are included for the ground state and first 40 excited states of argon.
