The Effects of Heavy Water (D2O) as a Catalyst in a CO2-N2 Gasdynamic Laser,
NAVAL ORDNANCE LAB WHITE OAK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
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.
