A single line UV Ar+ + laser has been used for the photochemical production of NaCd and NaHg excimers, detected by their characteristic bound-free emission in the blue spectral region. Selected laser lines excited specific levels in the C 1Πu electronic state of the Na2 molecule. The chemical reaction of the excited sodium dimer with Cd or Hg atoms produced NaCd and NaHg excimers. We suggest a simple model for the explanation of the observed spectra, based on recent ab initio theoretical calculations.
