Paper Abstract

We consider the possibility to design the fullerene-oxygen- iodine laser with optical pumping (solar, particularly). It is assumed that singlet oxygen is formed at pass of molecular oxygen through (and interaction with) mixture of lower and higher fullerenes in the triplet metastable state obtained at illumination of fullerenes. The presented results of estimates by a photokinetic model show the opportunity to reach the efficiency of the FOIL with solar pumping at the level of several tens of percents. We present the results of experimental and theoretical studies of singlet oxygen yield at interaction of optical pumping with fullerene in solutions. Laser radiation with wavelength of 532 nm and wideband lamp radiation for imitation of solar radiation were used as pumping. The paper presents the first experimental results on the yield of singlet oxygen, produced in vacuum chamber via interaction of gas-phase molecular oxygen with fullerene devices, irradiated by solar-like lamp emission.
