Abstract : The authors report measurements of the small-signal-gain and time-resolved spectral output of a flash-initiated D2-F2/CO2 chemical transfer laser system. Small-signal-gain measurements indicate a possible lack of rotational equilibration among the rotational levels of the CO2 during the DF-CO2 v-v energy transfer process. Time-resolved spectral output of this system, operated as a laser oscillator, is presented as verification of the small-signal-gain results. (Modified author abstract)
