Paper Abstract

A comprehensive kinetic model and numerical code were developed to simulate photolytic excitation and lasing in gas media pumped by intense, broadband optical sources. The kinetic model is generally applicable to any photolytically pumped lasing scheme. Initial simulations were performed for the XeF(C yields A) laser and computational results are compared with experiments using exploding wires (EWs) and segmented surface discharges (SSDs).
