Abstract:

Since the dimeric mercury molecule has several bound-excited electronic states, but a largely dissociative molecular ground state, It has been proposed as a molecular system for laser development. This note reviews much of the literature pertinent to the Hg2 system. Some of the topics reviewed include 1 band systems and potential energy curves, 2 chemical kinetics of dimer formation, 3 production of excited Hg atomic states, and 4 4850A-band laser considerations.
