Vibrational stimulated emissions of CO2 trapped in low temperature argon matrices have been found experimentally not only in the 16 mm region (n2 manifold) but also at 10 mm (n3 - n1 transition) in the double trapping site of concentrated samples. A detailed experimental description of these emissions is reported, including spectral analysis, time-resolved studies, laser energy dependence, and concentration and temperature effects. The characteristics of the emissions are discussed, giving some insight into the nonradiative intramolecular V√V transfers from the laser excited level n3=1 towards the n2 manifold, and inside this manifold.
