Paper Abstract

We present results from the early development of an F atom source appropriate for HF and AGIL chemical laser research. The system uses high power microwaves to produce a high enthalpy plasma that thermally dissociates molecular species such as SF6 and F2. Results of the characterization of the flow are presented.
