Abstract
The experimental results of study of sub- and supersonic chemical oxygen-iodine lasers (COIL) based on the jet type singlet oxygen generator are presented. The progress in the high pressure jet type singlet oxygen generators allowed to develop the compact highly efficient COIL. The different types of the mixing schemes were tested in supersonic COIL based on the high pressure jet singlet oxygen generator. The preliminary cooling of the active medium by mixing of oxygen with the cold buffer nitrogen gas results in high efficiency operation of the small scale COIL with subsonic and supersonic gas flow in the laser cavity. In COIL with the fast axial gas flow the chemical efficiency more than 20% was achieved.
