Abstract:

The purpose of this program is to study and further characterize the 8.03 micron laser in an effort to determine the importance of resonant energy transfer from vibrationally excited H2, and to investigate the possibility of obtaining other laser lines from C2H2 in the three to five micron wavelength range. If resonant energy transfer were effective in populating the upper laser level, gases other than acetylene are to be considered. NH3, CH4, and H2O were substituted for C2H2 in the discharge in an effort to find other lasing transitions in the three to five micron range.
