Abstract:

Gas laser action using a charge and current neutralized proton beam as a pump source has been demonstrated. Stimulated emission at 357.7 and 380.5 nm, corresponding to the v o transfers to v 1 and v o transfers to v 2 transitions of the N2C transfers to B band, has been observed in Ar5N6 gas mixtures. In comparison with electron beams, protons appear to be more efficient for excitation sources of high pressure UV and visible lasers. Author
