Abstract Gas cleanup in glow discharges was investigated. It is allied to the phenomenon of ion pumping, in which ions penetrate into the tube electrodes. Cleanup rates were investigated using a radioactive tracer gas, krypton-85. The density of Kr/sup 85/ was found to be 10% at 0.03 mil penetration depth in a plane nickel cathode. The application of Kr/sup 85/ tracer techniques in the study of gas discharges is continuing. (B.O.G.)
