Abstract:

This article explores avenues for the practical applications of DF chemical lasers, conducts an analysis and study of experimental output capabilities, and compares these results with ordinary nitrogen diluent DF laser capabilities. The results illustrate that for the output capabilities of the device itself, the nitrogen diluent is somewhat inferior to helium diluent. However, considering overall capabilities, nitrogen diluent DF chemical lasers continue to be one of the ideal candidates for a practical model.
