Twenty-five new, cw, FIR lines from by a CH2F2, optically pumped CO2 laser, have been found, using a variable-coupling, open-structure resonator. Accurate wavelength measurements have been made on the 47 known CH2F2 lines. The new lines are fairly uniformly distributed over a wide range, from 105-to 1448 μm.
