Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes recent progress that has occurred in several research areas related to the development of a repetitively-pulsed, frequency-shifted chemical oxygen iodine laser (COIL). COIL gain- switch experiments at 10 kHz pulse rates are described using a novel solid state pulsed magnetic field system. Raman conversion experiments in hydrogen using a pulsed photolytic iodine laser as a COIL surrogate are also described.
