Single-mode operation of a hybrid optically pumped D(2)O pulsed far-infrared laser
Single-mode operation has been achieved in a pulsed hybrid optically pumped D(2)O far-infrared laser. The active volume of the resonator was divided into two sections separated by a thin plastic foil. The larger section served as the main gain medium and the shorter section as the mode selective element. The vapour pressure in the smaller volume was either very low or alternatively about three times higher than the pressure in the main part. In both cases single-mode operation was achieved without any reduction of the total output energy.
