The energy and spectral characteristics of the argon dimer emission with the maximum at a wave- length of ̃126 nm under excitation by a pulse-periodic discharge in a gas flow with pressures higher than the atmospheric pressure are studied. A compact excilamp has been designed for obtaining radiation in the vac- uum ultraviolet spectrum region. The minimal argon flow velocities are determined, at which cooling is effected by convective gas ejection from the discharge region. This allows one to form a diffusion discharge with a stable radiation power density. It is shown that, when the flow velocity is 0.5 m3/h, the radiation power density of an molecule is
