We report the generation of pulsed optically pumped far-infrared (FIR) radiation with a repetition rate of 200 kHz. These pulses were obtained in a straightforward method by pumping a FIR resonator with a high repetition rate, rf-excited, waveguide CO2 laser. Pulses approximately 50 ns wide were generated both at 432.6 m in HCOOH, and 117.7 +n in CH,F,. The… CONTINUE READING
