Summary form only given. Large densities of alkali excited states are produced during operation of the diode (DPAL) and excimer (XPAL) pumped alkali laser. Through superelastic electron collision-al relaxation of these states, any pre-existing electrons can be heated, leading to additional ionization. Lasing on the D<sub>1</sub> transition (6<sup>2</sup>P<sub>1/2</sub> → 6<sup>2</sup>S<sub>1/2</sub>) of Cs can be achieved in both diode and excimer pumped alkali lasers. The first uses the D<sub… CONTINUE READING
