Abstract
This document discusses the necessary physical conditions for achieving laser action as a result of chemical reaction. The processes which are important to achieve this goal are considered in some detail, i.e. the vibrational transition responsible for the emitted radiation, the production of vibrationally excited species by reaction, and the vibrational-vibrational and vibrational-translational energy exchanges which tend to depopulate the excited levels. Several examples of chemically excited lasers are considered in detail.
