Gaseous saturable absorbers are studied. These absorbers are used for mode-locking of infrared lasers, particularly CO2. Nonlinear-optical coefficients and transition moments were measured. Detectors for infrared radiation were also studied. Mechanisms of point-contact detectors were determined and antenna patterns of infrared antennas measured. Potentialities of novel antenna-coupled IR detectors were explored.
