Abstract

The first observation to the authors’ knowledge of excimer molecules formed by reactive kinetics in a laser-produced plasma is reported. Emission from XeF at 351 nm and a new ionic excimer (XeRb)+ at 165 nm have been observed.

Experimental setup. A focused KrF excimer laser generates a plasma on a Ta target inside a heated cell. The soft x rays emitted from the plasma ionize the surrounding vapor, leading to the formation of excimer or ionic excimer species.
