Abstract

The first known observation of tunable, VUV-stimulated emission by anti-Stokes Raman scattering is reported. A metastable I*(5p52P1/2) population inversion is created with respect to the I ground state by selective photodissociation of NaI. With a 206-nm pump laser to drive the Raman process, anti-Stokes Raman-laser radiation at 178 nm was generated with a pulse energy of 35 μJ and was tunable over 10 cm−1.
