Gain and power in COILs-Theory and experiment Academic Article uri icon


  • Modeling of the gain and power in chemical oxygen-iodine lasers (COlIs) and comparison with experimental sttidies are reported The effect of mixing on the oper&w of the COIL is studied theoretically applying a simple one-diinensional leak flow tuhe n~ odel. Both the fraction of the dissociated indine and the~ naxiinnin gain are shown to he nonnionotonous functions of the iodine flnw rate (n1~). There is an optimal value ofni2, depemling on the (02 (1~)) yield, the gas vclocily and the teniperalure in the cavity, for which the gain achieves …
