Abstract:

The results of a theoretical effort to develop models which will be useful in the experimental program to study certain chemical lasers are presented in the report. A simple model of a flowing continuous wave chemical laser assuming instantaneous mixing is developed and used to treat the Cl HBr reaction as an illustrative example. A nozzle exit and cavity program which was developed to treat gas dynamic lasers is to be used to modify the model studied for transfer chemical lasers. The results obtained using this program to make numerical calculations of the performance of the arc-driven supersonic mixing laser operating in the gas dynamic mode are compared with experimental results. A theoretical model of the CS2 O2 flame laser has been set up. Author
