The net‐small‐signal gain of a molecular fluorine F2* laser pumped by a coaxial electron beam has been measured in gas mixtures of He/F2 and He/Ne/F2. A peak net‐small‐signal gain of 0.63 cm−1 has been measured in a mixture of He/Ne/F2 at a pressure of 8 bar and a pumping power density of 13 MW/cm3.
