Paper Abstract

The physical processes of both discharge excited and optically pumped far infrared lasers will be discussed. Experimentally this work is based on the use of a tunable millimeter and submillimeter spectrometer as a diagnostic probe of the internal energy transfer mechanism in these lasers. Quantitative numerical models whose parameters describe fundamental energy transfer processes will be discussed. Emphasis will be on results which have the potential to lead to new or improved laser systems.
