Abstract : A description is given of studies aimed at producing a far infrared generator by mixing two laser generated frequencies. Attempts to use two CO2 CW operating lasers proved unsatisfactory. A successful experiment was performed, however, by using a single Q-switched CO2 laser simultaneously radiating at 9.6 and 10.6 microns and focused on an InSb crystal.
