Paper Abstract

Numerical code for simulating the vibrational distribution function in an RF excited slab CO laser with diffusion cooling is developed. Spatial distributions of the small signal gain on the fundamental and first overtone for different vibration-rotation transitions were obtained. Dependence of gain on the wall temperature, input power and gas mixtures was studied.
