The goal of this research is to quantify laser pulse energy and intensity on P-branch and rotational lasing transitions and provide data from well-defined experiments for interpretation and analysis of computational studies of HF and DF chemical lasers. A compendium of technical reports and publications on rotational non-equilibrium effects in the HF and DF lasers is presented. Modeling efforts have assessed the sensitivity of laser performance to various kinetic mechanisms. The importance of rotational non-equilibrium is identified and the possible effect of vibrational to rotational energy transfer on P-branch and rotational lasing is considered.
