Paper Abstract

Vibrational distribution function (VDF) of CO molecules was measured at "on" and "off" laser radiation in CO laser excited by longitudinal DC discharge. The kinetic equation for VDF and electron Boltzmann equation are solved selfconsistently. Comparison of the experimental and theoretical laser spectra and VDF show good agreement. Effect of spectral lines selection using intracavity NO absorber on the VDF shape was studied experimentally and theoretically.
