Abstract
One of the ways of the enhancement of optically pumped FIR laser's efficiency is the utilization of appropriately polarized pump and FIR fields. It was shown in [1], that the optimum of field polarizations depends on the the types of the transitions involved: Q, R or P type. General principles of gain calculation for different field polarizations are given there. The results are calculated through direct summing of spectral components. Note that the quantization axis z lay in the plain of field polarization vectors. In [2] the quantization axis z was selected to be perpendicular to both pump and FIR electric field vectors, parallel to their wave vectors. The problem of polarization dependence of laser efficiency was investigated both experimentally and theoretically, also by direct summing of spectral components.
