Abstract : A low heat loss combustion chamber for a gain generator assembly is shown. The gain generator assembly operates in a cylindrical gas laser. The combustion chamber includes a plurality of primary rings having fuel and oxidizer injectors therein as well as primary nozzles. End caps attached to the primary rings contain reaction products so that they flow through the primary nozzles on the primary rings past a secondary injector array into a lasing cavity of the gas laser.
