Paper Abstract

The two-level generation model taking into account kinetic and optical losses has been applied to analyze and predict output performances of a continuous-wave oxygen-iodine laser (OIL) with chemical, electric discharge, and optical pumping. A comparative analysis of the calculation results and the experiments for cw OILs with different pumping types has shown the applicability of the model in practically important cases when low losses were ensured. The medium extraction efficiency degree can reach 90% of the potentially attainable for lasers pumped by all mentioned sources. The possibilities of increasing the cw OILs power efficiency have been considered on the basis of operating modes mapping.
