Paper Abstract

The chemical oxygen-iodine laser derives its energy from the reaction of basic hydrogen peroxide with chlorine. The traditional oxygen-iodine laser uses an 'open loop' cycle, in which fresh reactants are furnished in bulk form. This approach is not suitable for a continuously operating laser because supplying fresh reactants and disposing of reaction products are expensive and require significant logistics. This work describes a new concept for continuous in-situ regeneration of chlorine and basic hydrogen peroxide.
