DEFINITION
Excimer

A contraction for "excited dimer"; a type of lasant. A dimer is a molecule consisting of two atoms. Some dimers (e.g., xenon chloride and krypton fluoride) are molecules which cannot exist under ordinary conditions of approximate thermal equilibrium but must be created in an "excited" (e.g., energized) condition by special "pumping" processes in a laser.
