Abstract : Two tunable dye lasers, operating in the region 7000 to 8500A, have been used to study the wavelength dependence of laser-induced gas breakdown. The results confirm the existence of a threshold maximum for argon and xenon, and indicate that the shape and location of the peak depend on the gas investigated. (Author)
