Abstract: The results of an experiment on the associative ionization collision between sodium and cesium excited atoms are reported. The atoms are excited by two resonant cw lasers to the 3P3/2 and 6P3/2 levels, respectively, and the formation of the NaCs+ molecular ion is observed. The rate constant of such process has been measured relative to the known rate constant of sodium associative ionization and its value resulted in K = (5.4 +/- 3.2) x 10(-11) cm3s-1.
