Paper Abstract

The kinetic-cooling effect of a CO2-N2-He gas mixture on the cell placed within a laser cavity is here used as the basis of a scheme for chirp-compensation in an injection-locked TEA CO2 laser. The cooling of the gas is a result of its irradiation by the laser pulse. A kinetics model has been developed in order to determine both temperature and refractive index on the basis of detailed vibrational relaxation kinetics
