Abstract

We summarize the 194 far-infrared lasing lines of hydrazine: 7 new lines, 144 lines that we reported recently, and 43 lines reported by other authors. Fewer than 5% of the 43 previously reported lines had wavelengths shorter than 200 μm, but 82% of our 134 lines (127 and 7 new), discovered in cw 12C16O2-laser-pumped hydrazine, were shorter than 200 μm; the shortest was at 49.2 μm. Of the 194 lines now known in hydrazine, 150 have been frequency measured. We present the pump line, the pump offset from the CO2 line center, the far-infrared wavelength and frequency, the optimum pressure, the relative intensity, and the relative polarization of each line.
