Abstract:

The results of an experimental shock tunnel investigation of the effects of varying heavy water concentration and temperature on the small-signal-gain of a gasdynamic laser are presented. Comparisons of experiment with numerical predictions of small-signal-gain are made as well as a comparison of heavy water with water as a catalyst for a gasdynamic laser.
