Abstract
We describe the modeling of a pulsed iodine laser that operates by first producing iodine atoms from photodissociation of RI, followed by energy transfer with electronically excited oxygen O2('Δ). 35 rate processes are considered. By using the Runge-Kutta-Gill integral method in computing, the performance of such oxygen-iodine pulsed lasers is obtained under various operating conditions. The results show that this type of pulsed oxygen-iodine chemical lasers possesses high chemical efficiency. Increasing the partial pressure of O2('Δ) is shown to be the key step to improving the performance.
