1. In a laminar-flow fluid nozzle, the combination of a fluid chamber having one substantially knife edged outlet orifice, an inlet port connected to a wall of said fluid chamber, a diffuser means disposed within said chamber between said inlet port and said outlet orifice, said outlet orifice being located on one wall of said fluid chamber such that the distance from said outlet orifice to any adjacent side wall of said fluid chamber is substantially different from the distance to any other adjacent side wall, whereby the non-centered location of said outlet orifice functions to dampen the effect of pump surges and vibration and thereby increases the laminarity of the output stream emanating from said outlet orifice.
