Abstract : A self-supporting laser diffuser flow energizer is described for improving the performance of radial flow lasers by improving the performance of radial flow lasers by providing novel means of pressure recovery, and comprises a self-sustining suction means communicating with the laser cavity for changing the supersonic shock front configuration existing within a radial laser diffuser and thereby promoting the flow of gaseous laser medium within the laser cavity.
