Abstract:

A triple slit nozzle was constructed for use on a continuous, diffusion-type, HF chemical laser. In this nozzle, a primary supersonic stream of He, F, and F2 is separated from the H2 stream by a buffer stream of He. When the primary stream contains large amounts of F2, either because the dissociation level is down or because there is less diluent, the buffer stream serves to reduce the severity of the reaction between F2 and H2 near the nozzle exit plane. The results of measurements of the flow properties of the triple slit nozzle and its use in an SF6 laser are discussed in this report. Author
