Tables are presented that list submillimeter laser lines observed in the optical pumping of molecular gases with CO2 laser radiation. The lines have been obtained from previous publications by various authors and are in the wavelength range from 34 μm to 1.965 mm. One table lists, for each gas, the submillimeter wavelengths observed, the line of the CO2 pump laser, references to the literature, and, where available, the polarization and power of the submillimeter laser and the power of the CO2 pump laser. A second table lists all the observed laser wavelengths in numerical order together with the gas in which each line was observed. These tables should be useful to researchers working with submillimeter lasers.
