$.get jquery question on how to open up into new window

I'm using a jquery and coldfusion search interface.  When the user enter text and select search button, I would like for the results to display in a new popup window and not within the same window....How can i do this...see code below:

var search = $("#searchText").val()
if($.trim(search) == '') return false
function(data, status) {
return false

<form id="searchForm"><input type="text" id="searchText" /><input type="submit" value="Search" /> </form>

<div id="results"> </div>

try this
function chkForm(){
  var search = $("#searchText").val();
  if($.trim(search) == '') {
    alert("please enter something!");
    return false; 
  return true;

<form id="searchForm" action="search.cfm" target="_blank" onSubmit="chkForm()">
<input type="text" id="searchText" /><input type="submit" value="Search" />
