Efficient production of singlet delta oxygen in a bubble singlet oxygen generator (BSOG) under the influence of centrifugal acceleration, 136 g, has been obtained. An output power of 770 W with chemical efficiency of 25.6% has been achieved in a small-scale, supersonic chemical oxygen-iodine laser supplied by the centrifugal BSOG. The ratio of the output power to the basic hydrogen peroxide volumetric flow rate was 4.3 KJ/liter. Efficient chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) operation with the centrifugal BSOG demonstrates the potential for mobile COIL applications.
