This paper reports what we believe to be the first observation of a stimulated nonresonant anti-Stokes Raman laser. Thallium vapor which was inverted by selective photodissociation of TICI was used as the Raman medium. Using the second (532-nm) and third (355-nm) harmonics of a Nd:YAG laser as pump sources, stimulated anti-Stokes emission from the TI(6p2P3/20) to the TI(6p2P1/20) state was observed at 376 and 278 nm, respectively.
