This report describes the research accomplished in the second quarter of the program entitled CO Chemical Laser Research. The theoretical treatment of the cw CO chemical laser Task 3 is the main subject of this report. In order to investigate the collisional relaxation effects occurring in CO chemical laser media, the master relaxation equations for CO-M systems were solved by computer calculations. The complete theory, including fluid flow, chemical kinetics, relaxation, and optical properties, is described in detail. The zero optical intensity theory is used to model the MDRL CO chemical laser for two cases of interest with and without CO300 K injection into the reacting stream.
