Paper Abstract

Iodine dissociation has been measured in the supersonic cavity of a chemical oxygen-iodine laser during lasing under a wide variety of flow conditions. By varying flow conditions, measured dissociations from 0 to 100 percent were observed. A simple model of the initial step in the dissociation process was developed that adequately rationalizes the measurements.
