Abstract : The matrix nozzle for mixing lasers in which an inner tube forms a path for the primary flow and a chamber around the inner tube opens around the outer periphery of the inner tube to form a flow path for the secondary gas flow. The exiting of the primary and secondary gases rapidly mix and cause lasing to take place. With this arrangement, the primary gas flow adds turbulence to the secondary gas flow as it exists and causes better mixing of the gases. (Author)
