Results of optical pumping of samarium and europium vapors by radiation of excimer XeCl*, XeF, and KrF* lasers are presented. Stimulated electronic Raman scattering of the XeF* laser radiation in samarium vapors at wavelengths λC = 589.1 and 608.2 nm was obtained. Stimulated electronic Raman scattering was observed in the infrared spectrum range at wavelengths λC = 2501 and 2414 nm when irradiating europium vapors by the KrF* laser radiation.
