Abstract
IN ORDER TO PROVIDE SECURE UNDERWATER OCEANIC COMMUNICATIONS, VARIOUS BLUE-GREEN LASER SYSTEMS ARE CURRENTLY UNDER CONSIDERATION. DIATOMIC SULFUR (S2 B---X) RADIATION WHICH IS LINE TUNABLE THROUGHOUT THE BLUE-GREEN PRESENTS AN ATTRACTIVE ALTERNATIVE. THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL EXPLORE DISCHARGE FORMATION OF DIATOMIC SULFUR VAPOR WITH EXTERNAL OPTICAL EXCITATION PROVIDED BY XENON CHLORIDE ULTRAVIDLET (= 308 NM) SOURCES.
