Abstract

A 16-μm CF4 laser oscillator has operated at 1 kHz in a cooled static cell. Pump energies required from the low-pressure, Q-switched, cw-discharge CO2 laser were as low as 60 μJ. The laser cavity was a multiple-pass off-axis-path two-mirror resonator in a ring configuration. CF4 laser power at 615 cm−1 and a 1-kHz repetition rate exceeded 300 μW.
