Paper Abstract

The basic opportunity of bistable dependencies of medium temperature and vibrational energy of molecules on heat conduction parameter and on normalized VT-relaxation time is shown for light energy absorption at non-ground vibrational levels. Practical realization is possible, particularly, by usage of elliptically defocused beams. As a result there is anew opportunity to form high temperature domains in the any section of medium, using defocused light beams. The bistability property, discussed within the framework of the point model, is confirmed by modeling of a light pulse propagation in optically non-uniform vessel with molecular gas.
