Paper Abstract

There has been a rapid development of tunable infrared lasers in the past four years, spurred in part by their need in spectroscopic applications. The purpose of this talk is to review the present state of continuously tunable infrared lasers which operate in the 1 to 20 4,m wavelength region, the so-called "fingerprint" region of the infrared. Since it is not possible to discuss each of the ten types of lasers developed to date due to limitation of time, we will only identify them, discuss their general characteristics, and illustrate their capabilities with a few examples of spectral data. Some of the experimental techniques unique to tunable laser spectroscopy will also be described.
