Laser induced cross fluorescence of Cs2 and Rb2 molecules in the infrared region (1.0-1.6 μm) has been observed using several exciting wavelengths from an argon-ion laser and a tunable cw dye laser. New emission bands have been observed. The lower states of these bands have gerade symmetry and therefore have heretofore escaped observation by conventional absorption spectroscopy.
