Paper Abstract

Development of a Chemical Oxygen-Iodine Laser (COIL) with alternative ways of atomic iodine generation is aimed at power increase and simplified laser operation. Advantages of chemical generation of atomic iodine using gaseous reactants directly in the laser medium are confronted with disadvantages of using molecular iodine as a source of atomic iodine in conventional COIL devices. Some recent results on COIL operation with chemically generated atomic iodine supported with computational modeling are presented.
