Modelling the Cavity of Continuous Chemical Lasers (CCLs) Using Matlab Applications


The subject that concerns us in this work is the numerical simulation and optimal control of equilibrium of the continuous chemical lasers (CCLs). Laser Chemistry: Spectroscopy, Dynamics and Applications are a carefully structured introduction to the basic theory and concepts of this subject. In this paper we present the design and discuss the performances of a continuous DF chemical laser, based on the exothermic reaction: F+D2DF(v,j)+D
