Abstract:

Contents Attainment of negative temperatures by heating and cooling of a system Negative absorption in a nonequilibrium hydrogen plasma Radiation enhancement in a recombining plasma Population inversion obtained by thermal dissociation of molecules in a shock wave Beam laser for the infrared band Cooling of free electrons in a plasma A mechanism ensuring level population inversion in CO2 lasers Rapid recombination of plasma jets Population inversion in adiabatic expansion of a gas mixture Influence of rate of disintegration of the lower laser level on the power of a CO2 laser Thermal methods of laser pumping CO2 lasers Powerful gas lasers Stimulated Mandelshtam-Brillouin scattering in carbon dioxide in the vicinity of the critical point.
