Paper Abstract

An overview of recent experiments carried out at McMaster University on optically pumped NH3 lasers will be given. Both pulsed and cw lasers have been investigated, and conversion efficiencies - 40% have been measured. More than sixty laser transitions have been generated in the 10 to 30 μm region, with cw power as high as 10 W and pulse energies >4.5 J on the strongest lines.
