Paper Abstract

We optimized the TEA CO2 laser operation and selective dissociation process of Freon22 with the laser for efficient enrichment of C-13 isotope. We maximized the yield of C-13 isotope by irradiating Freon-22 towards red edge of its absorption spectrum and utilized laser energy efficiently employing a novel Linear Multi-Pass Cavity (LMPC) for irradiation at constant laser fluence. We produced C-13 at 1 5mghr rate with 240mJ laser energy at 100Hz repetition frequency, which corresponds to a one of the highest reported production efficiency factor of about 1.7×10-7g/J.
