Abstract

We report the frequency measurements of 18 optically pumped far-infrared(FIR) laser lines generated from CD3OH and  13CH3OH. We use the heterodyne technique of mixing FIR laser radiations and microwave radiation on a metal-insulator-metal point-contact tunnel diode to determine the FIR laser frequencies. Two FIR laser systems, consisting of CO2 waveguide pump lasers and Fabry–Perot FIR laser cavities, were used as optical sources.
