In this paper, we summarize the electron pumping and molecular transfer kinetics of pulsed CO lasers, as to their influence, as well as the influence of gas pressure and temperature, on pulsed laser emission line structure, pulse duration and energy output per unit gain volume. Correspondence with existing experimental laser data is shown and compared to these factors. Implications for pulsed laser applications are explored.
