Abstract

We report the observation of tunable far-infrared emission from D2O with a 17-GHz tuning range. Using a tunable high-pressure CO2 laser for optical pumping, we have studied laser emission from D2O and achieved tunable laser emission from 91.23 to 91.81 cm−1 with a maximum detuning of 13 GHz from resonance. We have also studied the temporal behavior of the far-infrared laser emission.
