Abstract

Stimulated emission on the BX band of the XeF* molecule in the liquid phase at 404 nm was observed following transverse optical pumping at 351 nm. The energy of this emission was measured to be ~70 μJ, and the pulse had a FWHM of ~5 nsec. The stimulated-emission spectrum showed considerable narrowing compared with the spontaneous-emission spectrum. The temporal behavior of the 404-nm pulse was investigated, and gain saturation of the lasing medium was observed.
