Paper Abstract

The demonstration and characterization of a multiwatt All Gas-phase Iodine Laser (AGIL) are described. A 20-cm subsonic reactor was used to produce NCl(a1Δ) for a series parametric studies of the I*(2P1/2) - I(2P3/2) small signal gain and extracted power dependence on reactant flow rates and reaction time. A reduction in the flow channel height led to improved performance. The highest measured gain was 4.2 x 10-4 cm-1 and the highest power observed was 31 W.
