Paper Abstract

A new gain saturation model of chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) is deduced from the conservational equations of population number of upper and lower lasing levels. The present model is compared with both the Voigt profile function (VPF) model and its low-pressure limit model, and the differences between different models are pointed out. These differences are ofuse to the optimization of COILs' adjustable parameters.
