Paper Abstract

Two experiments in which laser oscillation without population inversion was obtained for the first time are reported. Analytical solutions are presented to elucidate the principles of the experiments. Numerical simulations and experimental results in a Rb vapor cell and a Na atomic beam for the gain profile are compared.
