Paper Abstract

The generation of ultrashort CO2 pulses by optical free-induction decay in KCl:KReO4 is described. Here the narrow v3 vibrational mode is coincident with the 10.6 μm, P(26) laser line. For instantaneous shuttering of the incident laser beam, pulses in the picosecond range may be produced by this material. In practice, the minimum pulse length and pulse intensity were severely limited by the breakdown time of the nitrogen plasma cell.
