Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We have used millimeter/submillimeter spectroscopic techniques to investigate the pressure dependence of the absorption and gain frequencies of several optically pumped far infrared lasers. Pump offset effects on the gain frequencies were also investigated. These measurements are free from obfuscating effects such as cavity pulling and competing lasing lines which are present in measurements of oscillating laser systems.
