We have studied the subpicosecond gain dynamics of XeCl and KrF with the following results for XeCl (KrF): Saturation energy density 0.85 (2.0) mJ/cm2, small-signal-gain coefficient 0.12-0.15 (0.20-0.22) cm-1, gain recovery of 62% (25%) with a time constant of 52 (54) psec. A molecular reorientation time of = 1 psec was observed in both excimers.
