Experimental and theoretical studies of the spectral distribution of fluorescence and absorption in the far wings of alkali resonance lines broadened by rare gas atoms will be used as a basis for the prediction of approximate values for the laser gain in such mixtures and in Xe2, i.e., ground state dissociation lasers. This discussion makes use of the quasistatic theory of spectral line broadening which relates the observed fluorescence intensity to the intermolecular potentials for the bound excited state and the dissociating ground state of the molecule.
