Abstract
The processes governing the operation of both the pulsed COIL with a forced homogeneous generation of atomic iodine and the premixed I2-dissociated continuous-wave laser are identical. It makes it possible to use a pulsed laser with a low chlorine flowrate to simulate the high power CW operation and to predict its performance. The examples of such predictions made for famous CW laser systems 'RADICL' and 'RotoCOIL1' are presented and discussed. Experimental results on application of AOM for generation of a train of microsecond pulses are also presented.
