Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The spectra of the 200HgBr81 and 64ZnI lasers were recorded following 193 nm (ArF) photodissociation of the corresponding triatomic salts and the dominant line in the 200HgBr81 spectrum is tentatively assigned to the (0, 23) transition of the B → X band. The use of 200HgBr rather than the natural abundance salt was found to increase the HgBr laser's conversion efficiency by 15 percent while 64ZnI2more than doubled the ZnI laser output.
