Paper Abstract

Temporal behavior of small signal gain in pulsed CO laser amplifier operating with oxygen rich gas mixtures CO:He:O2 and CO:N2:O2 was experimentally studied. The rich content of oxygen in helium mixture (CO:He:O2 =1:4:2) resulted in ~8-fold increase of the maximum gain on low vibrational transitions (10->9) and strong absorption on high ones (21->20). A high efficient pulsed CO laser operating with gas mixture in which oxygen substituted for nitrogen was launched.
