Paper Abstract

The Zeeman effect is used here to demonstrate a gas-phase, self-healing Q-switch for a kwatt-class chemical oxygen-iodine laser. Enhancement ratios of pulse power over CW power of 16 to 1 are achieved with extraction efficiencies of 75 percent. The flows of each type of chemical are presented, and the laser configurations are shown.
