Paper Abstract

The demonstration and characterization of a multi-watt All Gas-phase Iodine Laser (AGIL) are described. A 20-cm subsonic reactor was used to produce NCl(a1Δ) for a series of parametric studies of the I*(2P1/2)-I(2P3/2) small signal gain and extracted power dependence on reactant flow rates and reaction time. The highest measured gain was 2.5x10-4 cm-1 and the highest power observed was 18 W.
