Paper Abstract

The characters of combustion driven cw deuterium fluoride (DF) chemical laser with C2H4/NF3 reactant were numerically investigated. The numerical simulation was carried out using compressibility scaling method--a finite difference technique for the numerical integration of the steady and unsteady Navier-stokes equations for reactive flow. The small signal gain and the flow field were calculated. The numerical results shown that active zone length of the cw DF chemical laser with C2H4/NF3 is very long, which is about 6 cm, and the average cavity pressure is about 7 torr as the combustion pressure is about 1.5 atm. These results shown that the DF chemical laser with C2H4/NF3 is suitable for high cavity pressure performance.
