Abstract:

A new Laser And Mixing Program LAMP is described which considers the coupling between gasdynamic properties, cavity characteristics, and resulting laser radiation for diffusion-type chemical laser oscillator cavities. The formulation assumes parallel mixing and constant lateral pressure with lasing due to single or multiple transitions between certain vibrationalrotational molecular energy levels. Excitation of the active medium traversing a Fabry-Perot optical cavity is caused by highly exothermic reactions between gradually mixing reactants discharged from a grid nozzle. Uniform, premixed inviscid laser cavity flows can be investigated as a special case of the more general analysis. The report contains a description of the analysis as well as a users manual. Author
