Abstract: A transverse-pumped sodium vapor active element has been designed. A possibility of lasing at resonant transitions upon active medium excitation by nanosecond pulses of different energy and spectrum has been experimentally studied. The medium was pumped using a dye laser and a CuBr laser. The emission on sodium D lines was detected when pumping by yellow CuBr laser light.
