Laser emission at 172 nm has been produced by pumping a Nd:LaF3 crystal with incoherent Kr[ATOTHER]@B|[/ATOTHER] 2 radiation at 146 nm. The 5-ns pulse contained approximately 20–30 μJ of energy. Fluorescence measurements indicate potential for tuning from 170–175 nm, which should be observable with OH--free crystals.

    A spatially tunable laser emission of the dye-doped cholesteric polymer film is demonstrated by generating a one-dimensional gradient photonic band gap which is cured by an ultraviolet light. A frequency-doubled pulsed Nd:YAG laser is used to pump the film. The lasing wavelength is tunable from...
