Abstract:

An electro-optic shutter, activated by a pulse generator switched with a laser triggered spark gap having a risetime of about 120 psec, has been used to produce optical pulses of variable duration, as short as about 600 psec, from the output of a uv photo-preionized CO2 laser, which simultaneously oscillates on several rotational transitions.
