Abstract

It was demonstrated in the past that the XeF(C—A) laser is an efficient potentially broadband tunable visible laser. Recently, narrowband (0.001-nm) laser output from an injection-controlled XeF(C—A) laser was reported.1 However, broadband tuning was impaired by absorption from transient atomic species and a decreasing gain in the wings of the XeF(C—A) tuning range. These shortcomings can be overcome when a high-intensity quasi-cw injection source is employed. Experiments using such a source are reported that characterize the XeF(C—A) laser over a wide parameter range.
