Paper Abstract

Computer analysis of the pure chemical H2-F2 amplifier with input laser radiation with sharp maximum at the front results in development of discharge, and initiating a chemical chain reaction by the electron impact is undertaken. As the calculations show when the peak intensity is equal to (2-5)X1011 W/cm2, the effective initiation of the H2-F2 amplifier takes place at high mixture pressure during several nanoseconds. Specific laser energy reaches the value 1000-2000 J/l.
