Abstract
The trial for world first oscillation of oxygen iodine laser using high frequency discharge was conducted. Maximum excited oxygen efficiency was recorded up to 21% by the microwave (MW) discharge and 32% by the radio frequency (RF) discharge. The highest efficiency of 32% singlet oxygen was achieved by producing plasma jet through the hollow cathode of RF discharge. Laser oscillation test was carried out connecting with RF discharge singlet oxygen generator (DSOG) to a resonator which was arranged longitudinal to the gas flow. Spontaneous emission of its wavelength 1.315 micrometer from iodine electronic transition was detected by the spectra-analyzer from laser output mirror. The laser oscillation was confirmed by detecting an amplification of the emission when laser mirrors were aligned.
