Abstract
An experimental investigation was made of the passive mode-locking of a UV-preionized CO2 laser operating in an unstable wavelength- selective resonator using SF6, BC13 and N2F4 as bleachable gases. Stable repetitive pulse trains with individual pulses having energies as high as 2 J at 2 ns duration have been obtained on a large number of P and R transitions of the 00 degrees 1-10 degrees 0 band at 10.6 mu m.
