Lasing on 6 FIR lines is reported for the new laser molecule cis-C2H2F2with high conversion efficiencies up to 7 percent of the maximum theoretical limit. A set of molecular selection criteria was used to predict efficient FIR lasing from this molecule, and analysis of the laser performance has increased the basic understanding of the molecular parameter contribution to high conversion efficiency. From this work a refined set of selection criteria has evolved that may be used to predict additional efficient laser molecules.
