Paper Abstract

A novel optically pumped submillimeter laser system with a thin gold-coated glass waveguide and a 'dual color' laser outcuopled mirror has been developed. The system is based on the improvement of the laser cvavity efficiencies at IR and submillimeter wavelength. The thin gold-coated glass waveguide is fabricated by a specific technique, the 'dual color' outcoupled mirror is made up of a multilayer dielectric coating and a gold coating. The new type of submillimeter laser system has the advantages of having a lower IR pump loss, a lower submillimeter transmission loss and a higher submillimeter laser coupling output. The output laser lines in the spectral range from 118.8 micrometers to 1253.7 micrometers in wavelength have been obtained. The transverse intensity profiles of the submillimeter laser are a near Gaussian beam. The manufacturing technique and results are presented in this paper.
