Recently, the optically pumped rare gas lasers have been attracted extensive attention. Rare gas laser systems with Ne (2p53p), Ar (3p54p), and Kr (4p55p) atoms have been investigated. However, there are sparse studies based on Xe. In this work, new phenomena, intensive mid-infrared amplified spontaneous emissions (ASEs), are found after two-photon excitation of Xe from the ground state to the 6p[1/2]0 state. Simultaneously, substantial 6p[1/2]1 atoms are populated. The thresholds of ASE peak 1 and the generation of 6p[1/2]1 atoms are both about 1.5 mJ. It indicates that there should exist the relationship between these two phenomena. The ASE signals show broadband spectra. Therefore, it must be yielded by the superposition of Xe2* excimer transitions. The mid-infrared ASEs lead to excimers correlating to the 6s’[1/2]1 enormously generated. Then these excimers dissociate to produce substantial 6p[1/2]1 atoms. Under some circumstance, the ratio of the 6p[1/2]1 to 6p[1/2]0 atoms reaches about 80%. It indicates that the 6p[1/2]0 atoms strongly tend to decay through the emissions between the excimer states. Using these emissions, continuous-tunable mid-infrared laser with metastable Xe can be promisingly produced.
