This paper reports the results of a series of investigations undertaken on CW noble gas ultraviolet ion lasers. We have obtained up to 2.3 W CW UV output power from these tubes, substantially greater than that reported previously. A maximum efficiency of approximately 0.01 percent has been obtained in a practical tube design. A total of 31 violet and ultraviolet laser lines were observed in Ne II, Ar III, Kr III, and Xe III.
