Abstract : Laser action was achieved in spark-excited CS2-O2 mixtures at pressures of the order of 1 mm. The laser emission, in the region 5.0 to 5.3 microns, is attributed to CO, a product of combustion. It is suggested that the mechanism responsible for forming the excited CO is CS + O2 = CO + SO.
