Paper Abstract

Laser medium parameters of multi-kW grid nozzle supersonic Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL) were experimentally studied. Small-signal gain (SSG) diagnostics was done by a narrow line width tunable laser by scanning 1 GHz range around (2P1/2 ) - (2P3/2) spin-orbit transition line of atomic iodine. SSG was investigated as a function of Mach number and gas flow rates. Modeling of gain for different flow conditions was done as well. Multi-kW COIL device was recently developed in Miki Pulley Co., Ltd. (Japan) and has 37.5 cm length of active medium.
