CsF vapor generated in a heat pipe was excited by a laser-produced plasma. Temporally integrated spectra and time-resolved fluorescence on the ionic excimer transition Cs2+F → Cs+F were observed at 185 nm. The pressure dependence of the fluorescence is influenced by self-absorption in the CsF vapor. The fluorescence is assigned to the Cs2+F (21/2, B) → Cs+F (21/2, X) transition.
