Abstract

A search for gain or absorption on several candidate visible chemical laser transitions has been carried out using the intracavity dye laser probe technique. Absorption was found on the following v″ → v′ bands of the BaO(A1∑ ← X1∑) bands in the Ba + N2O reaction: 0 → 1; 0 → 4; 1 → 1;1 → 2, and 5 → 1. No gain or absorption could be detected on the 7 → 1, 6 → 0, and 4 → 0 bands (sensitivity ~10−4/cm). In Ca, Sr + N2O + CO flames, absorption was found in the green arc bands of CaO and the red arc bands of SrO. Several new bandhead wavelengths are reported. Our results support assignment of the arc bands to the diatomic metal oxides. Absorptions and enhancements were found on various Sr, Ba, and Ba+ transitions.
