Abstract
The paper presents experimental studies of supersonic oxygen-iodine laser (OIL) using twisted-flow singlet oxygen generator (SOG) over a wide range of the singlet oxygen pressures and the buffer gas flow rates. The experiments used different designs of the nozzle unit and mixing system for singlet oxygen and iodine gas with the carrier gas (such as nitrogen or helium). For a wide range of the key parameters, the study looked at the efficiency of supersonic OIL with variation of the singlet oxygen pressure. The measurements were made for different positions of the iodine injection plane with respect to the critical cross-section (both in the subsonic part of the nozzle and in the supersonic flow). The gas pressure at the nozzle unit entry was varied from 50 to 250 Torr. The total pressure loss have been found for different mixing designs. Experimental curves are given for energy performance and chemical efficiency of the supersonic OIL as a function of the key parameters. Comparison is made between the calculated and experimental data. For the optimum conditions of OIL operation, chemical efficiency of 25-30% has been achieved.
