Abstract:

In the course of performing the work discussed in this report, the basic feasibility of Rayleigh Scattering, Raman Scattering and Holographic Interferometry as HFDF laser cavity diagnostic techniques was investigated. A new HFDF chemical laser system designated CL III was designed, fabricated and underwent preliminary testing to evaluate reactant mixing of parallel, fully developed H2 and F supersonic flows in the lasing cavity and scaling to higher power while maintaining good potential for pressure recovery.
