Starting from a sealed-off CO laser with a long-life output of 29 W/m in multiline operation, we developed a tunable version of this device. The system described has a discharge length of 97 cm. It was made transition-selective by using a three-mirror configuration. In this way we were able to tune the laser to more than 70 oscillating vibrational-rotational transitions of the CO molecule.
