Extremely efficient near resonant intermolecular energy transfer from selectively formed metastable states of SiO and GeO is used to pump select receptor atoms with a focus on the creation of visible chemical laser amplifiers and oscillators. Visible transitions associated with thallium ([MATH]), gallium ([MATH]), sodium ([MATH]), and potassium receptor atoms have been considered. A detailed outline of the alkali based systems is presented.
