Paper Abstract

The kinetics of chemical processes in the laser gas mixture is theoretically studied to explain its effect on power extraction of the transverse-flow 1.2 kW CO2 laser system. The reactions of chemical species with excited electronic states, ions as well as heterogeneous recombination, are included into the model. The chemical equilibrium strongly depends on the excitation conditions.
