Paper Abstract

Generation of singlet oxygen and atomic iodine for operation of the chemical or discharge oxygen-iodine laser (COIL/DOIL) is described, employing novel methods and device configurations proposed in our laboratory. A centrifugal spray generator of singlet oxygen was developed, based on the conventional reaction between chlorine and basic hydrogen peroxide. Recent results of theoretical and experimental investigation of the generator parameters are presented. A new conception of the discharge generator of singlet oxygen was initiated, based on a combined DC arc jet and RF discharge techniques. Principle of the generator currently developed and constructed is described. A new device configuration was designed for the alternative method of atomic iodine generation using a radiofrequency discharge decomposition of iodine compounds like CH3I or CF3I. Some recent experimental results of this research are also presented.
