Paper Abstract

A short-wavelength chemical laser concept producing the well-known excimer lasant XeF* has been developed and is under study. By photoinitiating the reaction of pre-mixed hydrogen azide (HN3) and xenon difluoride (KeF2 )' the scheme has been demonstrated to produce XeF*, as well as other excited species. The production of various excited states has been studied as functions of reactant concentration and initiation conditions.
