  • Extending the emission range of gas lasers is an attractive proposition, for example, in laser spectroscopy, atmosphere sensing, laser media diagnostics, initiating chemical reactions, and separating elemental isotopes. In this context, carbon monoxide (CO) lasers offer several advantages over other sources of IR radiation, including control of output energy and pulse duration over a wide dynamic range. Moreover, they ensure high average power in repetitively pulsed modes. An electric discharge… CONTINUE READING
