Abstract:The potential for zinc and cadmium excimers to act as ultraviolet broadband ampli er media is investigated. A detailed presentation of the theory of bound-free emission and free-bound absorption is given. New internuclear potential curves for the B1 + u upper states of both cadmium and zinc excimers are t to observed data. Absorption, emission, and net gain spectra are calculated. Details of how to perform calculations are presented. The details of an ongoing experiment to demonstrate gain are presented.
