Paper Abstract

This paper brings experimental results on a repetitively pulsed Chemical Oxygen-Iodine Laser (COIL) using a gain modulation or switching by means of an externally applied magnetic field, based on the Zeeman effect. A peak-to-average laser power enhancement factor and a power conservation factor were evaluated from these experiments in dependence on a magnetic field intensity and a length of magnetic pulses, as well as their shape. A critical view on the pulsed method used is presented.
