Paper Abstract

The effect of water vapor on the operation of a chemical oxygen-iodine laser without a water vapor trap is described. The maximum cw laser power of 87 W was obtained without the water vapor trap at C12 flow rate of 740 mmol/min. An alkaline H202 solution (90 wt% H202, 50 wt% KOH) was cooled down to about -30°C in order to control the saturated H202-H20 vapor pressure less than 100 mTorr. Two porous pipes made of carbon were utilized as a singlet oxygen generator.
