Paper Abstract

The exciplex pumped alkali laser (XPAL) system was recently demonstrated in mixtures of Cs vapor, Ar, and ethane, by pumping Cs-Ar atomic collision pairs and subsequent dissociation of diatomic, electronically-excited CsAr molecules (exciplexes or excimers). Because of the addition of atomic collision pairs and exciplex states, modeling of the XPAL system is far more complicated than classic diode pumped alkali laser (DPAL) modeling. In this paper we discuss BLAZE-V multi-dimensional modeling of this new laser system and compare with experiments.
