Paper Abstract

A supersonic flow chemical oxygen-iodine laser is developed utilizing a jet-type singlet oxygen generator and the output power of several hundred watts is successfully attained. In the present study, the reaction zone structure of the supersonic flow chemical oxygen-iodine laser is also simulated solving the 2D Navier-Stokes equations. The numerical results clearly show that the enhancement of mixing is indispensable to improve the laser performance.
