A new method is described for constructing an AM mode-locked, multiline TEA CO2laser oscillator generating nanosecond pulses. The multiline behavior is achieved by spatial separation of the rotational transitions at the amplifying medium. The setup generates 1.15 ns pulses with an energy of 3.7 mJ per pulse and containing simultaneously six rotational transitions in the 10.6 µmP-branch.
