Paper Abstract

Recent advances in lead salt laser design have resulted in significant increases in both continuous and discontinuous tuning ranges. The former improvement results from a reduction in lateral and circulating modes. The latter increase in total tuning range is a consequence of increased maximum operating temperatures. The importance of such improvements will be illustrated with analyses of stable and transient gas species as well as deuterated species of water.
