Abstract:

Significant successes have been achieved in developing molecular optical quantum generators by using continuously pumped gas through an active element--a discharge tube. The temperature of the gas is one of the most essential parameters in determining the efficiency and generation capacity. It is of interest to investigate the influence of gas pumping on the magnitude of heat evolution and the temperature distribution of the gas in the discharge tube of a molecular laser. For this purpose it is necessary to solve the problem of heat exchange with steady-state gas flow in a round tube with a given distribution of internal heat sources and limiting conditions of the first type. The investigation is limited to an examination of the laminar flow of a gas in a smooth cylindrical tube.
