Paper Abstract

Numerical and experimental study of processes of absorption of pumping radiation of HF-laser, a laser oscillation and a radiation amplification in a (CO2+N2O) active medium of high pressure is carried out. Measurements and numerical estimation of an absorption coefficient for 21 spectral lines of the HF-laser radiation, which are strongly absorbed by the CO2 and N2O molecules, are performed. Measurements of an integral absorption coefficient for total pumping spectrum for the laser media of various content are carried out. About 63 and 35 % of radiation of the non-chain and chain chemical HF-laser, respectively, are absorbed using a four-component laser mixture. For the mono-component active media the maximum specific energy of an output radiation in 10 microns region, efficiency of an energy conversion and a small signal gain (12CO2 - 200 J/l, 18 %, 9 m-1 ; 14N2O - 100 J/l, 7 %, 6 m-1) are obtained. For two-component (12CO2+14N2O)-active media these parameters are 120 J/l, 7%, 7 m-1 at maximum laser energy 12 J. According to the numerical estimation, a coefficient of conversion of energy accumulated in lasing mode to energy of a pico-second pulse in 10.6 micron region for mixture of the CO2 and N2O molecules may achieve 30 %.
