Paper Abstract

A small scale experiment has been set up to investigate the deactivation of O2(1(Delta) ). The effect of different buffer gases and defoamer on the O2(1(Delta) )-yield has been studied. With a deconvolution calculation water vapor can be measured by mass-spectrometry. Cold traps and Raschig-Rings were used to diminish the water content in the gas flow. O2(1(Delta) )-deactivation measurements show, that non-metallic materials should be preferred for construction of chemical oxygen-iodine lasers. To compare different experiments the O2(1(Delta) )-deactivation may be described by simple equations. Comparison of these equations with experimental data leads to the conclusion, that the reaction order of the O2(1(Delta) )-deactivation varies from 1.825th to 1st order in dependence of time and O2(1(Delta) )-partial pressure.
