Abstract
An ejector nozzle bank powered by centrifugal bubbling SOG is considered like highly efficient gain generating system for COIL. A high potential recovered pressure ~100 torr of the gain medium flow with a small signal gain higher than 1% cm-1 and low oxygen plenum pressure has been demonstrated. A centrifugal bubbling SOG is an efficient source of oxygen at high pressure with high depletion of the BHP in the single burn dawn. A high 02(1&Dgr;) yield and chlorine utilization higher than 90% have been obtained at chlorine gas loading up to 6 mmole/s per 1 cm2 of the bubbler surface. The ejector COIL powered by centrifugal bubbling SOG demonstrated ~25% of chemical efficiency with specific power 6 kJ per 1 litre of the BHP in the single burn dawn. The combination of centrifugal bubble SOG with ejector nozzle bank can be considered as a promising gain medium flow generation system for COIL.
