AbstractThe 10.6pm transmission properties of SF6 were measured using nanosecond-duration pulses for various buffer gases and buffer gas pressures up to 3 atm. The addition of a barer gas strongly increased the SF6 absorption at moderate energy fluenees without significantly altering the high fluence pulse transmission. For pressures above 1 atm the transmission behavior appeared independent of the pulse duration over the range of parameters investigated in this experiment. The implication of these results for CO2 laser applications will be discussed.
