Abstract

We describe the results of analysis of the experimental and calculated data on the water vapor and ammonia absorption coefficients of CO2-laser radiation. We believe that the different halfwidths of CO2-laser lines, caused by different pressures of the working mixtures in specific experiments, are probably the reason for discrepancies between data presented in various papers.
