Abstract

The frequencies of 28 lines of the 12CF4(ν2 + ν4) → ν2 laser have been measured with an accuracy of ±0.2 cm−1 for 12C16O2 pump lines from P(14) to R(24). The CF4 pump and laser transitions have been identified and the band origin and rotational constant of the ν2 level determined to be ν2 = 435.27 ± 0.06 cm−1, B2 = 0.19143 ± 0.00007 cm−1. From these constants the laser frequencies expected from any given pumping frequency can be predicted to within ±0.2 cm−1.

Typical energy-level diagram for the CF4 laser, with the total angular momentum quantum numbers in the vibrational ground state and in ν2 + ν4 and ν2 denoted by J0, J′, and J, respectively. The arrows indicate allowed transitions to the three Coriolis sublevels of J′ = 30 of ν2 + ν4 and allowed laser transition down to ν2. R(12) of 12C16O2 pumps the transition R+(29), populating the + level of J′ = 30; stimulated emission occurs from this level to J = 31 of ν2, producing the strong laser line P(31) at 615 cm−1.
