4 April 1997 Operating experience with a high-throughput jet generator
Author Affiliations +
Over the last several years, Rocketdyne has conducted a number of experiments on advanced jet generators. Both cross flow jet generator and counter flow jet generators have been tested. We have made laser power measurements at our Continuous Wave Chemical Laser Facility (CWLL) and at the Air Force Phillips Laboratory RADICL test facility. A test there resulted in a measured chemical efficiency of 29.6%. This is the highest efficiency reported for a supersonic oxygen-iodine chemical laser.
