Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Multiplicity of the output frequency of a spin-flip laser, caused by the simultaneous multiline operation of the CO pump laser, is identified. This multiplicity is shown to arise from a four-wave mixing process for which only a single input threshold intensity exists for oscillation. Experimental data are presented together with a determination of the interdependence of the input and output frequency power ratio. © 1978 Chapman and Hall Ltd.
