Paper Abstract

We have studied a self-terminating bismuth-vapor laser at (lambda) equals 472.2 nm with an average output power of 58 mW. Laser action was observed across the entire gas-discharge tube at pulse repetition rates between 3.0 and 5.4 kHz. Laser operation at a moderate buffer-gas pressure (PNe approximately 100 Torr) is shown to be feasible. The pulse repetition rates at which laser action occurs are between 500 Hz and 14 kHz.
