The chemiluminescent reactions of alkali atoms with SCl2 in the presence of a buffer gas can produce a highly inverted population of the vibrational levels of the B state of S2. The results of this work support the suggestion that the S2 B-X transition is an appealing candidate for a visible wavelength chemical laser, especially if the buffer gas relaxes the high vibrational levels of the X state as well as promoting three body recombination of S2.
