Abstract
The study of a possibility to construct the Au-vapor sealed off laser which generates both in the visible ((lambda) equals 627.8 nm) and UV ((lambda) equals 312.2 nm) was carried out. Application of the laser to some problems of the atmosphere sounding may be a matter of great interest. An analysis of the literature data has shown the requirements to pumping of the Au-vapor laser on the 312.2 nm transition to be harder than on the 627.8 nm one. This fact explains only a few available publications on Au-vapor generation mechanism of UV laser. In our experiment an active element was made of beryllium on ceramic basis of 20 mm in diameter and 800 mm in length. Quartz locks controlled by an external permanent magnet were used to protect the output windows from dust.
