Paper Abstract

In this paper, a model of the temperature field in a laser cavity, is proposed. This model includes the calculation of the electron concentration in a turbulent flow. First, a 1D study is validated with experimental data of Leys et al. Second, the model is applied to a 2D argon flow. This study shows that the knowledge of the temperature field allows us to characterize the correlation between the plasma oscillations and turbulence fluctuations of the neutral gas.
