Paper Abstract

Chemical reactions are abundant sources of energy varieties concentrated in their excited products. This experimental fact constitutes the basis of the conception stated by Poolany J. C. in 1961, who offered to use exothermic chemical reactions for population inversion. This conception was implemented by Russian scientists A. N. Oraevsky and V. L. Tal'roze in their works. It was they who formulated the major requirements which chemical reactions must meet for effective lasing.
