Paper Abstract

Axial-fast-flow CO2 laser was investigated numerically taking into account turbulent and convective cooling of the gas medium. The model developed includes a description of the vibrational kinetics and the gas motion. The calculations were made for two real 500 W and 1200 W CO2 lasers, respectively. The results obtained show a good agreement between the experimental and theoretical data.
