Paper Abstract

Modeling studies have shown that fractions of O2(1Δ) may be produced in an electrical discharge that will enable oscillation of a chemical oxygen-iodine laser system in conjunction with injection of pre-dissociated iodine. Results of those studies along with recent experimental results indicate that generation of O2(1Δ) can be optimized by the addition of flow diluents and select choice of process parameters. The model predicts the experimentally observed spatial decay of O2(1Σ) and shows reasonable agreement with experimentally observed temperatures.
