Efficient, narrow spectral output has been achieved by injection control of an electron-beam excited XeF (C→A) laser medium using a 482-nm dye laser pulse having a spectral width of 0.01 nm. The energy density and intrinsic efficiency characteristic of the amplified output beam were 3 J/l and approximately 2.5%, respectively, and the spectral width was on the order of that of the injected pulse.
