Paper Abstract

This analysis provides modeling results for beam propagation of a low power HF chemical laser operating on the first overtone through summer conditions at a coastal site. The first set of cases consists of three low rotational quantum number (J) lines. The second set of cases consists of the single J = 6 line. While there is significant Strehl intensity degradation in only one case, many of the propagations exhibit the same small-scale structure expected in higher power systems.
