The influence of the addition of nitrogen to a He–CO mixture on plasma-chemical processes in a discharge under conditions characteristic of the active medium of a sealed-off CO laser was studied. It was found that the addition of nitrogen noticeably decreased the rate of CO dissociation and the concentrations of C atoms and C2 and C3O2 molecules formed in a discharge in the course of plasma-chemical reactions.
