A magnetic quenching of generation in a chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) has been studied experimentally. This work gives data on a quenching threshold magnetic field in dependence on a resonator output coupling and an iodine concentration in the laser active zone, respectively. It was found that the threshold value of magnetic field was a decreasing function of the output coupling and an increasing function of the iodine molar flow rate. The normalized gain ((alpha) th/(alpha) ) is a decreasing function of the threshold field.
