Abstract : The reaction of NO with active nitrogen produces excited species which can transfer energy to CO2 yielding laser lines at 10.6 micrometers. It has been demonstrated that the reaction of N atoms with NO yields N2 in a vibrationally excited state. It has also been demonstrated that the discharge parameters are critical and that different discharges produce species which can energize the laser in various ways. (Author)
