Abstract:

The kinetics of O2 first-negative band laser due to near resonance charge exchange between He2 and O2 are presented. It can be excited in the afterglow of a discharge in a high pressure He and O2 mixture HeO2. Gain calculation, however, is presented for discharges due to high energy proton beams advocating their use for high pressure gas lasers. In addition, a comment is made on the disappearance of 3914 laser lines with increasing N2 density in the He2 N2 charge exchange laser. Author
