Abstract
The construction and operation of a chemical generator of 02(a1 delta g) are described. The system could be readily modified to drive a purely chemical iodine laser operating at 1.315 mu m. Optical techniques were developed for estimating the excited oxygen concentration that arrives at a downstream cavity at total O2 pressures from 1 to 6 torr. Mechanisms that explain the deactivation of excited O2 in the gas stream are discussed. A value for the singlet delta energy-pooling rate constant is determined from the measured O2(a1 delta g) concentrations.
