Using a small electron beam device, we have observed time-dependent competition among the 1.73, 2.03, 2.63, and 2.65 μm lines of the xenon laser in a high-pressure argon buffer. The small-signal gain and saturation intensity for each of these lines have also been measured. The maximum specific energy output of the laser was 1.7 J/l and the efficiency was 2.3%.
