    An output laser energy of 83 mJ, which corresponds to a specific output energy of 2.9 J/l, was obtained by exciting a 10 atm He/F2 gas mixture by an extremely intense electric discharge at a peak excitation rate of 66 MW/cm3. A fast rise of the voltage between the discharge electrodes prior to...

    A novel automatic F[sub 2] detecting method has been developed which uses the chemiluminescence emitted following a gas phase reaction between F[sub 2] and SiH[sub 4]. The new method is shown to be sensitive enough to detect a ppm level of F[sub 2] mixed in rare gases, and the signal is linear...

    Abstract. For laser collimation of neutral F atoms, a resonance transition cycle between the metastable and the upper excited states (3s [sup 4] p[sub 5/2] arrow left and right 3p [sup 4] D[sup 0] [sub 7/2]) can be used as a two-level closed system. We have determined the lifetime of the...

    .We describe the spectral dynamics of a line-narrowed F[sub 2] laser, based on numerical simulation by a newly developed simulation code.
