Abstract

The atomic xenon laser is among the most efficient and powerful of thenear-infrared gas lasers, especially when pumped by molecular ions in an Ar-Xemixture. Accurate oscillator strengths for the laser transitions are criticaltodeveloping a fundamental understanding of the inversion dynamics, gain, andpower extraction of this device. We compare results from several methods ofcalculating oscillator strengths for six laser lines ranging in wavelength from1.733$\,\mu$m to 3.508$\,\mu$m. In some cases, our recommended values differ considerably from those employed in previous work.
