Remote backwards lasing in air Conference Paper uri icon


  • We demonstrate high gain lasing in air from two-photon dissociation of molecular oxygen and simultaneous resonant two-photon pumping of an atomic oxygen fragment. This backwards emission provides a remote laser source for standoff detection. © 2011 Optical Society of America.
