Abstract
We have investigated the generation of superradiant far-infrared 496 μm CH3F pulses and produced for the first time 373 μm CH3CN superradiant pulses obtained by pumping with pulses from a hybrid 10 μm CO2 laser which are truncated by a plasma shutter of new design. Superradiance is confirmed by measurement of the pressure dependence on intensity, width and delay versus the pump pulse. We have observed pulse durations well under the limit of the inverse linewidth of the transition and obtained pulses as short as 3 ns in comparison to 14 ns previously reported by others.
