Bismuth fluoride, BiF, a possible energy acceptor molecule in a chemically-pumped donor- acceptor electronic transition laser has been produced in a flow tube reactor. A high voltage discharge was used to produce bismuth and fluorine atoms which combined to form ground state BiF(X). Laser induced fluorescence studies confirmed that BiF was formed following the discharge. A vibrational temperature of 581 +/- 35 K was measured.
