New strong CW FIR laser actions and assignments in COF2

  • 26 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


Thirty one new cw far-infrared laser lines have been discovered in COF2 optically pumped by a CO2 laser and a N2O laser, in a metallic waveguide resonator. This number appreciably increases the number of eighteen lines appearing in the literature. Moreover, some of the new lines show that intense far-infrared laser action might be obtained with an optimized cavity, as it was the case for some of the previously reported lines. Twenty-seven, amongst the thirty one new lines, have been fully identified.
