Paper Abstract

The rate of generation of O2(1(Delta) g) using the chlorine-basic hydrogen peroxide reaction is a key element to predict the performance of the chemical oxygen iodine laser. O2(1(Delta) g) carries the energy in the laser, thus is one of the prime determinants of power in the flow. To predict the performance of O2(1(Delta) g) generators requires the prediction of the utilization of chlorine, the yield of excited oxygen, and the concentration of potential contaminants in the chemical exhaust of the generator. In essence, this is a standard problem in two phase flow. This paper is in the spirit of a review and describes the author's approach to the analysis to O2(1(Delta) g) generators.
