Summary form only given. Observation of visible and UV absorption bands in cadmium monoiodide (CdI) and mercury bromide (HgBr) in which the initial state is the laser's upper level (B**2 SIGMA ) is discussed. In each case, the band terminates on a covalent state that correlates with an excited metal atom and a ground-state halogen atom.
