Paper Abstract

Efficient subsonic chemical oxygen iodine laser operating with small buffer gas flow rate at Mach number M<EQ1 is reported. The highest value of output power of 415 W with chemical efficiency 23% was obtained at Cl2 flow rate of 20 mmole/s. It was found that the power does not almost depend on N2 or CO2 buffer gas flows up to two times higher than oxygen flow rate.
