Paper Abstract

A formic acid laser has been operated simultaneously on three lines of a cascade sequence by suitable choice of the resonator length, resulting in enhanced power on all three lines. The phenomenon can be used to construct a phase-modulated interferometer. For the output coupler used which exhibits phase anisotropy, simultaneous output on two orthogonally polarized lines of a cascade sequence has also been obtained.
