A Penning discharge tube has been used as the excitation source for optical detection of gaseous species concentrations in a neutral gas. This type of diagnostic has been primarily used in magnetic fusion energy experiments for the detection of minority species in the effluent gas (e.g., for helium detection in a deuterium background). Recent innovations (US Patent no. 6351131, granted February 26, 2002) have allowed for extension of the operation range from
