The report covers experimental and theoretical work on the feasibility of attaining laser action in high pressure gases excited by electron beam pulses. The radiative decay of Hg2 dimers has been measured as well as the existence of net absorption of excited Hg2. It is concluded that direct laser action by Hg2 is unlikely. A reappraisal of the HG2 states is presented. Initial experimental studies of Ar N2 mixtures are presented that show general agreement with model calculations and the ability to create large useable populations of metastable excited N2.
