Abstract
An optically pumped overtone HBr laser is investigated experimentally and theoretically. The frequency tuning and stabilization of the Nd:YAG pump laser is described. Results of HBr laser emission are presented. The simulation shows promising features of both pulsed and cw pumped systems concerning efficiency, frequency tuning and heat dissipation.
