Paper Abstract

A high power chemical oxygen iodine laser (COIL) has been developed at ONERA. A numerical model and numerous optical diagnostics are used for optimization. A maximum laser output of 600 Watts has been achieved. Laser power and efficiency are limited by an excessive water vapor content. A new water vapor trap has been successfully tested. A laser power of at least one kilowatt is expected.
