Numerical simulation and flow-tube experiments are conducted to understand the chemistry of the amine based all gas-phase iodine laser (AGIL). The numerical simulation code developed is a one-dimensional, multiple-leaky-stream-tubes kinetics code combined with all the known rate equations to date. The validity of the code is confirmed to compare the calculated results with experimental results reported elsewhere. We find that the key reactions to achieve positive gain are the deactivation reaction of excited iodine atoms by chlorine atoms and the self annihilation reactions of NCl(1Δ). The order of the injection nozzles is crucial to suppress these reactions. It is shown that positive gain is possible with optimized flow rates and nozzle positions. Flow reactor experiments are conducted based on these calculations, and small signal gain is measured. The results are compared with the calculations.
