ABSTRACT
A new method for producing simultaneous lasing at 10.6 μm and 38.3 μm in a CO2-N2-CS2 gasdynamic laser is presented. The theoretical analysis predicts small-signal gain values of the order 0.21 m-1 for 10.6 μm lasing in CO2 molecules and 0.085 m-1 for 38.3 μm lasing in CS2 molecules, indicating the possibility of dual wave lasing.
