This paper reviews new results in the field of organic dye vapor lasers. Gain studies of the scintillator dye POPOP in liquid solution and in the vapor phase show that a dye vapor exhibits optical gain nearly as high as in the solution case under excitation by a N2laser. Superradiant emission has been observed from both, optically excited POPOP vapor and electron-beam excited vapor. The optimum operating conditions of an electron-beam pumped dye vapor-buffer gas system with high purity argon as buffer are reported. Potential energy transfer processes from the rare-gas buffer to the dye vapor are discussed. The metastable ionic species Ar+2has been identified as the most likely POPOP excitation source after intense electron pumping of the dense Ar buffer gas at typically 4-5 atm. An estimate of the conversion efficiency from electronic energy deposited in the Ar buffer to stimulated emission of the dye yields 5 percent. These results suggest that an efficient tunable electron beam pumped dye vapor laser is feasible.
