Over the past three years an extensive molecular laser modeling code has been developed under ARPA sponsorship. This model characterizes the time evolution of pulsed molecular laser systems including the effects of non- Boltzmann electron distributions, stimulated emission processes, temperature and density transients and state-of-the-art energy transfer rate coefficients. During the last year a laboratory effort has been developed to complement these analytic studies. The report describes the results obtained from the modeling studies and the current status of the laboratory effort.
