New FIR laser lines from CHD2OH optically pumped by a cw CO2 laser

  • 29 Accesses

  • 15 Citations


This work reports 83 new optically pumped far infrared laser lines, using deuterated methyl alcohol, CHD2OH, as active medium. For each line we list the measured wavelength, its polarization relative to the pump line, the optimum gas pressure and the CO2 laser pump power at the maximum absorption.
