Laser spectroscopy is usually performed to make laser pass in the gas where the target atoms are contained, and this configuration is not good for the spectroscopy of silicon atoms owing to its very low vapor pressure. Hence, a hollow-cathode lamp is used and optogalvanic spectroscopy is performed, to keep high density of the silicon atoms in the discharge. This paper presents the optogalvanic spectroscopy of silicon atoms with a deep ultraviolet coherent light source, and observed spectral lines around 252nm.
