Abstract:

This final report details plasma-chemical and energy transfer studies carried out at the RIES. Experimental and analytical research has been aimed at understanding additive effects in discharge supported molecular laser systems, particularly the CO laser system. Extensive numerical model codes have been developed and applied to the CO system with considerable success. Experiments in the laboratories have provided important information on high lying vibrational states in CO, in agreement with model predictions. Collaborative studies between RIES and Princeton University on the behavior of vibrational distributions under strongly pumped conditions is outlined. Author
