Paper Abstract

A low pressure (23 mbar) CO2 laser with fast mechanical Q-switch (f <EQ 20 kHz) provides pulses [t(0.5) approximately equals 200 ns] at several wavelengths simultaneously. The special design of a three-mirror cavity allows the oscillation of up to six arbitrarily selected wavelengths of the same vibrational band.
