Potential hydroxyl ultraviolet laser. [Ar-H/sub 2/O]

Journal Article:

Abstract

A strong emission band extending from 3060 to 3120 A was observed following proton beam excitation of an Ar--H/sub 2/O mixture. This emission band was assigned to the transition of OH(A/sup 2/Sigma/sup +/)/sub nu=o/ ..-->.. OH(X/sup 2/Pi)/sub nu=o/. At high argon partial pressure (> 200 torr), the precursor of this emission band is believed to be the argon excimer Ar/sup *//sub 2/(1/sub u/). The fluorescence efficiency of Ar--H/sub 2/O is estimated to be a factor of 4 times that of Ar--N/sub 2/. Development of a highly efficient, tunable uv laser by e-beam pumping is promising.
