Abstract:

HCl chemical lasing has been obtained from chloro-compounds when HI was used as the source of H atoms. Lasing was produced from several P1, P2 and P3 and HCl transitions by transverse pulsed discharges in HI, He mixtures containing such chloro-compounds as CCl4, CHCl3, and several Freons. Both HCl and HF lasing were observed when C2Cl2F4 was used. The measured wavelengths for this HCl laser corresponded to excellent atmospheric windows for transmitting infrared radiation. No HCl lasing was obtained when HBr, N2S, or H2 were substituted for HI. Modified author abstract
