A high power kilowatt class Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL) has been developed at ONERA. In order to obtain a good quality I2-o2 mixing and reliable vapor iodine flow rate, a new iodine heater system has been studied and successfully tested. Optical diagnostics are used to measure iodine vapor, residual chlorine, water vapor concentrations and singlet oxygen flow rate. The set-up has now been completed and the new chemical oxygen generator is being tested. Preliminary tests have been performed with a reduced bubble column producing a laser output of 100 W for 50 s.
