Abstract

Incoherent optical pumping of the XeF laser has been demonstrated. Stimulated emission on the BX band of XeF at 349, 351, and 353 nm has been obtained by photolyzing XeF2 with Xe2* 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).
