Abstract : The object of this work was to develop an efficient chemical gain medium suitable for visible wavelength high energy laser applications. Achieving this goal requires: Demonstrating an efficient and scalable chemical source of electronically excited metastable atoms or molecules. Identifying a transfer agent that will rapidly accept energy from the metastables to generate a population inversion on a transition at visible wavelength. Developing a source of the emitting molecules capable of operating at densities adequate to extract the metastable energy before it decays by other means. jg p4
