Abstract

The work presented here extends previous studies of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) between ion-pair (charge-transfer) states of I-2 and shows that ASE can occur between states correlating with different states of the cation, namely, f0(g)(+)(P-3(0)) and D0(u)(+)(P-3(2)), despite the smaller transition dipole moment between them. A value of 0.34 e A is obtained for the transition dipole under experimental conditions where the f0(g)(+)(P-3(0))-> D0(u)(+)(P-3(2)) ASE is eliminated. No F0(u)(+)(P-3(0))
