Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB)


The purpose of this article is to present an updated state-of-the-art report on injection-locking as applied to TEA CO2 laser systems. As such, this brief overview reflects the continuing sustained interest in the operational behaviour of such systems and their applicability to a wide spectrum of tasks in a variety of research areas.
