Abstract
The slow down process of supersonic flow in channel of chemical lasers - DF-lasers and COIL - is discussed. Particularity of these processes in case of chemical laser is determined by heat generation existing in the active laser medium. Heat generation is determined by physics of laser and lead to reduction of slow down zone - pseudo-shock zone. So diffuser of chemical lasers must be shorter than traditional diffuser.
