Intense laser emission has been observed from the KrF molecule formed by a chemical reaction initiated by fast discharge circuitry. With a gas mixture of HeKrNF3 500501 and a sample pressure of 700 Torr, an output energy of 0.8 mJ was measured from a 25-nsec laser pulse FWHM. Spectral analysis of the laser emission indicated laser action at 248.5 and 249.5 nm.
