Experiments have been carried out to investigate a new method for generating O2(1Δ) with long-time operation of an efficient chemical oxygen-iodine laser system in mind. An impinging-jet nozzle was utilized to atomize a H2O2-KOH solution so that the alkaline H2O2/Cl2 reaction might occur in droplet-gas phase with high excitation efficiency. Experimental results indicate that the present generator can yield as high as 80% of O2(1Δ) with reasonable O2 flow rate.

    The evolution of singlet oxygen inside both microwave and RF discharges of pure oxygen has been observed for residence times of 0.1-2 ms, achieving a steady value within 1 ms. The corresponding limiting yields decrease inversely with oxygen pressure in the range 2-8 Torr. A kinetic analysis is...
