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.
