Abstract
The possible development of a room-temperature, 16 μm CF4 laser optically pumped by 5 μm radiation from a frequency-doubled CO, laser has been iyvestigated. This laser would utilize pumping ofithe v3 + v4 band of the CF4 at 1916-1 cm with subsequent lasing to v3 levels at 1283 cm-1 where there is essentially no thermally excited population. A spectrophone instrument was used to measure absorption cross sections of CF4 at the second harmonic frequencies of 22 of the 10 µm CO2 laser transitions. Lasing experiments to detect transitions at 16 μm are described.
