Paper Abstract

This work examines the prospects of generating gas-phase O2(1Æ) from thermal decomposition of (C6H5O)3PO3 for use in the oxygen-iodine laser. The process promises major advantages over the traditional production of O2(1Æ) from the reaction of C12 with basic hydrogen peroxide, namely (1) producing O2(1Æ) from a single liquid fuel (as opposed to reacting liquid fuel and oxidant gas), (2) fuel with a long storage life, (3) up to four times lower heat release which greatly reduces needs for refrigeration, and (4) simple hardware.
