Abstract

In a laser cavity containing primary species CO2, N2, He, H2, and CO, low-energy electrons are used to excite the vibrational modes of N2 and CO2. These same electrons also react with the primary species to form secondary species. The various types of reaction, with an example of each, are given below.
