Paper Abstract

We observed the two-photon excitation of the ground state, 1So, of Xenon to the 1D2 state at 79213 cm-1. A frequency doubled, nitrogen laser pumped dye laser producing approximately 1 kW at 39606.5 cm-1 was the exciting source. The excited state produced was observed by photomultiplier detection of the fluorescent decay to the intermediate 3P2 state in the near infrared. With Xenon at 6 torr, an absorption bandwidth of about 0.50 cm -1 was observed. Due to Doppler broadening, no isotopic shift or hyperfine structure was resolved.
