Abstract : The article investigates the formation mechanism of vibrational level population inversion in gas-discharge CO-lasers operating at room temperature and at the temperature of liquid nitrogen. Considerable space is allotted to an exposition of the presently available theoretical and experimental data on the probabilities of vibrational transitions in molecules. The works, in which calculations of the populations of vibrational levels in the CO-laser were carried out, are discussed in detail. (Author Modified Abstract)
