Theoretical Investigation on the Effects of Additive Oxygen in HF Chemical Laser Performance
Sung-Ho Kim*, Ung-In Cho
The effect of oxygen for the HF chemical laser performance has been theoretically investigated. Due to the inhibition mechanism of O2 in H2/F2 chain reaction, the rate for the formation of HF is reduced by the addition of O2. As the concentration of O2 in the reaction mixture increases, the pulse power and temperature of the system becomes lower, while total output energy does not change significantly. But addition of O2 makes the system easy to be controlled and the composition of H2+F2 can be high at constant total pressure. With this system, it is possible to obtain higher output energy than oxygen free environment.
