Efficient two-photon resonant frequency conversion of powerful pulsed dye laser radiation generates in Xe intense VUV light at \omega _{VUV} = 2\omega _{UV} - \omega _{D} . The frequency ωUVis tuned to the 5p-6p [ frac{5}{2},2 ] two-photon resonance ( \lambda _{UV} = 255.9 nm). For dye laser radiation ωDat \lambda _{D} = 300-760 nm ωVUVis tunable in the spectral range of \lambda _{VUV} = 155-220 nm. The resonantly enhanced conversion efficiency is typically 0.05-0.2 percent; the generated VUV pulse power P_{VUV} = 0.5-1 kW. The experimental results provide detailed information on conversion limiting saturation phenomena and their dependence on the input power and the detuning of ωUVfrom the two-photon resonance.
