Paper Abstract

The chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) is a scaleable high power laser promising for industrial applications. The principles of singlet oxygen generation in the jet type singlet oxygen generator and COIL operation are considered. The progress in high pressure jet type singlet oxygen generators allowed to develop the compact highly efficient COIL. The different types of efficient mixing schemes were tested in COIL based on the high pressure jet singlet oxygen generator. The preliminary cooling of active medium via mixing of oxygen with cold buffer nitrogen gas result in high efficiency operation of the small scale COIL with subsonic gas flow in the laser cavity. The project of COIL with high pressure of oxygen in laser cavity is discussed.
