Paper Abstract

A jet singlet oxygen generator for a supersonic chemical oxygen-iodine laser was studied including singlet delta oxygen, O2(1(Delta) g), and residual chlorine concentration measurements. The investigation was intended mainly for a water vapor measurement in gas effluent of generator in dependence on properties of liquid jets: a chemical composition and temperature of the input liquid (alkaline solution of hydrogen peroxide), a liquid jets diameter and their geometrical arrangement. Effects of these parameters on output power of a small-scale supersonic laser were studied as well. Possible approaches to a chemical fuels management in a chemical oxygen-iodine laser for industrial applications are considered. An 'open loop' cycle with a possible use of sodium hydroxide, and a 'closed loop' cycle with a regeneration of both potassium hydroxide and hydrogen peroxide are discussed.
