We report recent experiments that demonstrate the line tunability of a fluorine laser-pumped nitric oxide laser. Laser oscillation has been observed at 589, 234, 226, 218, 211, and 163 nm. The possibility of achieving laser oscillation on further UV and vacuum UV laser transitions in nitric oxide is discussed.
