Abstract

Step-tunable infra-red lasers have many applications in molecular physics due to coincidences between laser transitions and molecular vibration-rotation frequencies. Primary lasers in the intermediate infra-red spectral region are the carbon monoxide (5–6,5µm) laser and the carbon dioxide (9–llµm) laser. Both these lasers can be operated under a variety of conditions from stable c.w. to high pressure, pulsed operation.
