Paper Abstract

Over the past six years we have been conducting detailed studies of a family of closely related supersonic mixing nozzles. These nozzles have performed well in experiments with the VertiCOIL laser. Subtle design changes in these nozzles lead to highly predictable results when compared to the complete CFD calculations for the three designs under study. Our conclusion is that mixing within the jets very near the nozzle throat with nitrogen diluent provides a more efficient lasing process.
