Paper Abstract

At VNIIEF work on chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) was begun in 1982 at the Laboratory of Gas-Flow Chemical Lasers. The present report is a review of work performed at this laboratory, the same year generation at the 10 mW level was obtained. A year later the output power was increased up to 180 W. In 1986 optimization of the set-up operation allowed us to increase the laser power up to 900 W. Later a new research set-up was created. In 1990 it produced the output power of approximately 4 kW in 20 seconds.
