Paper Abstract

Molecular association lasers are characterized by laser molecules having a repulsive ground state with stable excited states formed by association of the constituent atoms. These lasers have the potential for high power operation with high efficiency in the visible and shorter wavelength region. The recent achievement of a xenon molecular laser has demonstrated the feasibility of this class of lasers.
