Abstract:

Laser action was observed for the first time in several new chemical systems in which HF was produced following a pulsed electrical discharge. The use of transverse multiple discharges enabled high pulse energies and peak powers to be obtained. It was possible to correlate the energy measurements and the spectroscopic output with the exothermicity of the reaction F RH HF R. Author
