We model the (v = 1, v″ = 0) band of the Birge-Hopfield I band system of molecular nitrogen, N2, i.e., emitted by nonthermal gas discharges in low pressure air. In particular, we calculate the rate of electron impact excitation of N2, which is thermally equilibrated at room temperature, to rotational levels J 31 of N2(b 1Π u , v′ = 1,). Subsequently, we calculate the intensity of emission lines resulting from radiative transitions from the aforementioned rotational levels to levels.
