• Abstract

A mathematical rate equation model using a Monte Carlo simulation has been used to analyze the laser optogalvanic signals of neon waveforms excited at 638.3 nm and 650.7 nm and arising from the $1s_{4}$ state transitioning to $2p_{7}$ and $2p_{8}$ states, respectively.   The decay rates have been determined for the directly involved $1s_{4}$ state and also for the indirectly involved $1s_{2}$ and $1s_{5}$ states.   There is good agreement among the decay rate constants found and they show a predominantly linear variation with increasing current.
