Paper Abstract

Usage of iodine atoms instead of molecules in oxygen-iodine laser permits to expand its range of operation parameters and improve the weight per power ratio. Results of experiments and modeling of plasma chemistry processes resulting in CH3I dissociation in a planar 40 MHz discharge are presented, showing that addition of oxygen or water into Ar:He:CH3I mixtures can lead to a noticeable increase in CH3I dissociation rate and inhibit iodine recombination during transport.
