XeF(B → X) laser optically excited by incoherent (formula presented) (172-nm) radiation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Incoherent optical pumping of the XeF laser has been demonstrated. Stimulated emission on the B ⟶ X band of XeF at 349, 351, and 353 nm has been obtained by photolyzing (formula presented) with (formula presented) spontaneous emission (172 nm). Peak power of ˜1.3 kW in a ˜30-nsec FWHM pulse has been observed from a high-Q resonator (˜0.1% transmission/mirror).
