ABSTRACT
The operation of a very efficient, high-energy DF-CO2 pulse chemical transfer laser is described. Laser specific energies as high as 21 J/l were obtained with a wall plug laser electrical efficiency of 130%. Higher laser energy can be obtained with lower efficiencies, e.g., 29 J/l at 80%. The electrical efficiency obtained herein is the highest reported to date for pulsed chemical lasers.
