Paper Abstract

The operating pressure of a FIR laser pumped by a Q-switched CO2 laser can beincreased by injection seeding it with a low-power, quasi-cw FIR laser. This increasein operating pressure is a result of an increased energy conversion efficiency. Afive-level rate equation model of the laser gives the same general results as theexperiments.
