Laser Transition Probabilities in Xe I



Abhijit Dasgupta, J P. Apruzes, O Zatsarinny, K Bartschat, Charlotte F. Fischer


The atomic xenon laser is among the most efficient and powerful of the near-infrared gas lasers, especiallywhen pumped by molecular ions in an Ar-Xe mixture. Accurate transition probabilities for the laser transitionsare critical in developing a fundamental understanding of the inversion dynamics, gain, and power extractionof this device. We compare results from several methods of calculating transition probabilities for six laserlines ranging in wavelength from 1.733 to 3.508 m. In some cases, our recommended values differ considerablyfrom those employed in previous work.
