Influence of nitrogen on CO-laser characteristics
AbstractThe role of the addition of nitrogen to the discharge plasma of CO lasers on plasma-chemical processes is discussed here. It is shown that nitrogen addition improves laser characteristics and changes the composition of the laser active medium. A reduction of CO highly-excited vibrational-states populations with current is smaller in the case of mixtures with nitrogen additions. The addition of nitrogen significantly decreases CO dissociation level and concentrations of C atoms created in plasma-chemical reactions of laser discharge.
