Abstract

Abstract We observed discontinuous response and hysteresis in a CO 2 laser cavity containing SF 6. The transitions for the onset and extinction of lasing were located for varying amplifications and attenuation parameters, and a “phase diagram” was constructed. Macroscopic and long period fluctuations were observed near the “critical” region.
