Abstract : An optically pumped submillimeter laser system having a laser cavity is described, which contains therein a diffraction grating. The diffraction grating is used simultaneously as an efficient first order diffractor for coupling in the short wavelength pump radiation and as a zero order or highly reflecting plane mirror for the production of an output of (long wavelength) submillimeter wavelength.
