Paper Abstract

The kinetics model of chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) active medium taking into account EE, EV, VV, VT energy transfer processes was proposed. The O2 molecule distribution on the vibrational levels in COIL was calculated. It is suggested that the involving of vibrationally excited O2(a) into pooling reaction can increase the rate of stored in singlet oxygen electronic energy in COIL medium. Approximately 50% of relaxed O2(a) energy transfers into thermal energy.
