Abstract:

The report describes the progress on the experimental study of atmospheric water vapor absorption at CO, HF, and DF laser frequencies using a one km White absorption cell and laser sources. Experimental data at 8 CO laser frequencies is reported which has an overall accuracy of plus or minus 5. The design and construction of a small pulsed electric discharge HF-DF laser is described.
