Abstract

We report on the operation of a thallium photodissociation laser with an active medium in the form of a thin layer on a quartz wall. Laser emission has been obtained with layer thicknesses below 100 μm. This gas laser seems to be feasible with an active volume as small as 10−1 to 10−2 mm3.
