Abstract

An atomic bromine electronic-transition chemical laser is described. Stimulated emission on the 42P3/2 ← 42P1/2 transition at 3685 cm−1 is obtained as a consequence of the reaction I(52P1/2) + Br2 → IBr + Br(42P1/2), and this reaction accounts for ≥85% of the quenching of I(52P1/2) by Br2. Stimulated emission is also obtained as a consequence of the reaction I(52P1/2) + IBr → IBr + Br(42P1/2).
