Abstract : Theoretical and experimental investigations of two-photon lasing and inversionless lasing have been completed. Continuous-wave two-photon lasing has been demonstrated for the first time and its predicted bistable character verified. The role of pump bandwidth in the production of inversionless gain has been studied and the maximal efficacy of narrow bandwidth of pumps identified. Continuous-wave lasing in a Cascade-type three-level atomic system has been observed. (MM)
