Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the recent development of mercury halide lasers. Comparison of the different pumping mechanisms is presented in terms of the efficiency for producing the excited state and the permissible operating conditions associated with individual techniques. A simple model for the optical extraction efficiency is discussed. Finally, the spectroscopy and some of the key issues for the related kinetics are briefly mentioned.
