Competition between three‐photon resonantly enhanced vacuum ultraviolet third‐harmonic generation and six‐photon multiphoton ionization using the A state in gaseous carbon monoxide is observed. Excitation spectra of the third‐harmonic emission exhibit increasing blue shifts and broadening with increasing pressure due to the phase matching requirements. Estimates for the efficiency and tunability show that third‐harmonic generation in carbon monoxide molecules is a promising source for coherent vacuum ultraviolet light.
