  • carbon dioxide (CO2) laser A gas laser in which the energy-state transitions between vibrational and rotational states of CO2 molecules give emission at long IR, about 10 µm, wavelengths. The laser can maintain continuous and very high levels of power.
  • continuous-wave (CW) laser A laser that emits radiation continuously rather than in short bursts, as in a pulsed laser.
  • gas laser One of the first lasers to find practical application. Generally, the pumping mechanism is an electric discharge, although some high-power forms employ chemical reaction or gas compression and expansion to form population inversion. Vibrational...
