Paper Abstract

The vibrational relaxation of the CO2 molecules in a mixture with Ar in the supersonic expansion of a coupled-modes gas-dynamic laser (GDL-CM) is studied in this paper. The measure of vibrational nonequilibrium is introduced and its relation to the available power of GDL is discussed. The effect of the initial temperature, pressure, and CO2 concentration is examined.
