Abstract

Experimental studies on a pulsed CO TE laser and a pulsed CS//2/O//2 chemical laser are performed with the same laser apparatus, and the two schemes are compared. The output energy of the CO TE laser is considerably enhanced by the addition of N//2, He and SF//6. When 0. 5-Torr SF//6 is added to 35-Torr CO, the output energy increases 4. 7-fold over that without SF//6. With the CS//2/O//2 chemical laser, output energies more than 3 times those of the CO TE laser are obtained. From spectroscopic measurements of the CS//2/O//2 chemical laser, many vibrational-rotational transition lines are observed in the V equals 15 minus 14 to V equals 5 minus 4 vibrational bands. For the CO TE laser, all the observed lasing lines are in the vibrational bands from V equals 11 minus 10 to V equals 9 minus 8. With the addition of 0. 5-Torr SF//6, the vibrational transition bands extend through V equals 12 minus 11 to V equals 6 minus 5.
