A model of HF-DF chemical lasers which includes a wave optics treatment of the resonator, a flowing gain medium, all important gas phase kinetics processes, and rotational non-equilibrium is discussed. The effects of rotational cross-relaxation rate on the predicted spectra for both stable and unstable resonators are shown, as well as the interaction of this effect with the placement of the resonator optical axis within the mode. The effect of partial aperture lasing and means for its suppression using cross-relaxation rate and/or optical axis placement are discussed. Some comparison with experiment is presented.
