Abstract
It may be possible to construct a new class of FIR gas lasers based on IR optical pumping of perturbation-allowed FIR transitions. They would be restricted to neither the low pressures required for OPFIR laser operation nor to the dearth of molecules with the chemical robustness required for discharge- pumped perturbation lasers. Salient features, including potential increases in laser efficiency, are presented and several candidate systems are discussed.
