Paper Abstract

Results of experimental investigation of the chemical generation of atomic iodine for a Chemical Oxygen-Iodine Laser (COIL) are presented. The work was focused on the reaction system with atomic fluorine as an intermediate species produced by the chemical way from gaseous reactants. At the first step, atomic fluorine is produced in reaction of molecular fluorine with nitrogen oxide. Then F atoms react with gaseous hydrogen iodide producing atomic iodine. The efficiency of this two-step process was studied thoroughly in dependence on mixing conditions, flow rate of reacting gases and pressure in the reactor. The results obtained on the small-scale device under experimental conditions simulating pressure and flow conditions in a COIL show that atomic iodine is generated by this alternative, advantageous method with rather high concentrations sufficient for operation of the supersonic COIL.
