Optically pumped lasers between high-lying states in the sodium dimer

  • 29 Accesses

  • 11 Citations


More than 25 laser lines around 2.5 μm from theC 1 u state to (3)1 g + and 7 laser lines around 0.9 μm from the high-lying1 u state to (2)1 g + in the sodium dimer were detected using a nitrogen laser as the pumping source. Most of the optically pumped laser lines have been identified.
