Paper Abstract

Tunable diode lasers are used to probe the dynamics of conventional cw CO2 lasers, and a cw Raman laser operating at 12 μm. The tunability, high resolution and high sensitivity of the diode laser allow us to obtain detailed information concerning vibrational popula-tions, relaxation rates, and gain coefficients which would be unattainable by more conven-tional techniques.
