Paper Abstract

The CO-CO2 laser, operating at laser transitions belonging to both CO and CO2 molecule spectra, are described. The multiple alternate changes of spectrum regions have been obtained due to chemical transformations of CO2 molecules to CO and vice versa. The transformations of radiating molecules are provided by volume and surface plasma-chemical reactions of CO and CO2 molecules with oxygen and carbon respectively. The device needs no low temperature cooling or flowing facilities. Also, both laser wavelength regions can be realized simultaneously.
