EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF ENERGY TRANSFER IN OPTICALLY PUMPED FIR LASERS.

Published

Conference Paper

The authors conducted a time-resolved double-resonance study of **1**3CH//3F to explore the rotational and vibrational energy-transfer processes in this optically pumped far-infrared (OPFIR) laser. The use of a Q-switched CO//2 laser and sensitive, tunable millimeter and submillimeter techniques allowed the probing of not only the gain profile of the laser transition, but also many other states that are collisionally coupled and play important roles in the energy-transfer process.
