Paper Abstract

The major effort in German research work related to oxygen-iodine laser technology is devoted to investigations of a supersonic multikilowatt laser device. The laser facility and latest performance data are presented and compared with the international state-of-the-art. The laser operation is supported by a number of small scale basic experiments aimed at the diagnostics of O2(1(Delta) ), the visualization of iodine mixing, the chemical properties of the basic constituents and the simulation of liquid jet type generators. Special emphasis is given to the perspectives of COIL industrialization. Propagation of iodine laser radiation and a concept for excited oxygen generation based on fullerenes also are addressed.
