We report the first experimental determination of the gain spectrum of a laser-pumped submillimeter laser amplifier. Single-mode pump and submillimeter oscillators were used to determine the gain as a function of submillimeter laser frequency, pump intensity, relative polarization, and molecular gas pressure. The 385 μm transition in D2O and the 496 μm transition in CH3F, both pumped by a CO2laser, were investigated. The use of single-mode lasers allows a direct comparison with theory. Good agreement is obtained with our recent theory which takes into account two photon contributions to the gain as well as space orientation (M-level) molecular degeneracy.
