Rotational relaxation in a line-selected continuous HF chemical laser.

Abstract

Rotational relaxation effects in a cw chemical laser amplifier or a line-selected oscillator are examined in terms of a simple analytical model. Three rotational levels in each vibrational level of the lasing transitionare taken to have finite rotational relaxation rates. The results.indicate the effects are likely to be significant, lowering the available… (More)
