Paper Abstract

The rare-gas halogen and diatomic halogen molecular gases are relatively efficient, narrowband radiators in the ultraviolet spectral region when excited by electron beams. We have recently demonstrated production of 1.315 micron stimulated emission in atomic iodine by photolyzing C3F7I vapor with fluorescence emission from the XeBr exciplex. The use of spontaneous and superfluorescent emission from selected rare gas halogen exciplex systems to pimp high average power atomic iodine lasers for fusion applications is explored with emphasis on the pump source kinetics in relation to amplifier design.
