Abstract

Experimental and theoretical results are presented for a CO2 laser pumped 12.08 µm NH3 laser which show evidence of pump intensity dependent unidirectional cavity mode frequency shifting rather than conventional frequency pulling. The frequency shifting arises due to the near-resonant nature of lasing in this system and hence should be a common feature of optically pumped lasers involving off-resonant pumping.
