Abstract
A review is given on ps-pulse OFID-10 μm-CO2 lasers equiped with new types of plasma shutters the plasma diagnostic of these shutters amplification of the ps 10 μm pulses with a highpressure CO2 laser amplifier the response of pyroelectric, standard and quantum-well photon-drag detectors thin-film Ni-NiO-Ni detectors submicron to these pulses as well as their analysis with Michelson autocorrelation arrangement with polycrystalline semiconductors instead of the usual single-crystal semiconductors as nonlinear media for second-harmonic generation. As a first application optical pumping of ns-pulse FIR gas-laser emissions with truncated infrared CO2-laser pulses is reported with the emphasis on superradiance. Aspects of other applications of the ps-OFID-10 μm-CO2 laser pulses and truncated hybrid-10 μm-CO2 laser pulses in atmospheric and solid-state physics are discussed.
