Paper Abstract

A simple theoretical model has been proposed to describe the population inversion of the narrow autoionizing levels in Si atoms. The collision process between two initially excited atoms has been employed to populate the high energy levels. The generalized method of the atomic orbitals is applied here to calculate the interatomic potential curves for the Si2 quasi-molecule and evaluate the probability of the energy transfer process. The laser amplification can occur with wavelengths within the ranges 214 - 310 nm and 111 - 122 nm.
