Abstract:

Several optically pumped Bi2 A-X lasers were demonstrated in the late 1970s and early 1980s with photon efficiencies approaching 20. Bismuth dimers also play an important role in the NFalpha sup 1 delta - BiF laser system. The current work reports on the collisional dynamics of the Bi2A0 sub state from a series of laser induced fluorescence experiments.
