Paper Abstract

A kinetics model to describe the behavior of singlet delta O2 in optically pumped liquid oxygen has been developed and tested against experimental data. The model was developed to study alternative methods of O2(a1Δg) production for the Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL), and has been used in conjunction with experimental data to determine a value for the pooling rate constant in liquid oxygen of 1± 0.5 x 10-17 cm3molecule-1s-1.
