A theoretical model describing the dynamics of an intracavity 16-μm laser was developed. This laser consists of a TEA-CO2 laser with an intracavity Raman cell. The Raman medium could be either hydrogen or deuterium, depending on the required wavelength. Stokes, anti-Stokes, and pump coupling were considered. Output energies as well as pulse shapes were calculated. Optimum output coupling was also determined. The model predicted that the intracavity Raman laser could be a viable alternative to a conventional multipass Raman cell for generating intense 16-μm pulses
