Abstract
The Air Force Phillips Laboratory has developed a small-scale supersonic Chemical Oxygen- Iodine Laser (COIL) test stand (VertiCOIL) in order to acquire COIL performance data quickly and inexpensively. The VertiCOIL device has demonstrated a chemical efficiency of 26.7%, the highest efficiency ever reported for a supersonic COIL. VertiCOIL uses a continuously-cooled basic hydrogen peroxide flowing loop which allows run times of greater than one hour.
