The design of a cell suitable for studying electron beam excited laser candidates at high temperatures such as organic dye and metal vapors is described. The cell is capable of handling temperatures up to 450°C and pressures from 10−6 Torr to 15 atm. Details of both the high-temperature laser performance of Ar-N2 and the gain characteristics of the dye POPOP [2,2′ phenylenebis(5-phenyloxazole)] are presented as an example of the use of such a cell.
