Paper Abstract

Nozzle banks for an ejector-chemical oxygen-iodine laser consisting of two-dimensional slit nozzles with a trip-jet mixing system were tested in the cold- and hot-flow operation regimes. Horizontal Pitot scan experiments demonstrated that the mixing ability of the trips is excellent. The Mach number of the mixed flow was approximately 3. The gain measurements were conducted, and the results of measurements revealed that the maximum gain was around 0.6%/cm. The gain cut-off length was more than 200mm. The lasing experiments were also conducted, and the power was about 3kW at the chemical efficiency of about 20%.
