Breakdown threshold with ruby laser excitation has been determined for the gases Cl2, Br2, I2, ICl, NO, NO2, Hg, and C6H6, using argon as a reference. Our results indicate that threshold depends mainly on the ionization potential and that effects due to absorption in the visible region are secondary.
