Paper Abstract

Some important applications of High Power Gas Flow and Chemical Lasers (HPGCL) are aimed to ground level operations. HPGCL are understood here as open cycle machines. It means that after the laser cavity their exhaust gases run out to the ambient atmosphere. Exhaust gas products after resonator cavity cannot be evacuated directly to atmosphere. The atmosphere pressure on the sea level exceeds the cavity pressure by 1 0 Ñ20 times for CO2 gasdynamic lasers (GDL) and by 150 Ñ200 times for chemical oxygen-iodine lasers (COIL).
