Nitrogen lasing in air Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • We demonstrate lasing in atmospheric air from multi-photon dissociation of molecular nitrogen followed by resonant two-photon pumping of the atomic nitrogen fragments. The backwards stimulated emission provides a remote laser source for standoff detection. 2013 The Optical Society.
