The development of a Chemical Oxygen-Iodine Laser is based on the generation of singlet delta oxygen in a gas-liquid reactor and on its transfer towards the laser section. A model taking into account the generation and the transfer is established to optimize the chemical efficiency of the complete system. Experimental data confirm the superficial gas velocity as the main operating parameter. Theoretical results demonstrate that the yield of singlet delta oxygen production can be increased to 100% and the operating pressure to a few thousand pascals.
