Optical fibers with attenuations much lower than those attainable in present-day silicate waveguides are possible in theory if mid-infrared operating wavelengths are used. The loss mechanisms, materials, and problems inherent in obtaining such fibers are discussed. Among several candidates, heavy metal fluoride glasses are suggested as being must suited to(More)
Power extraction and chemiluminescence experiments have been conducted in the large-scale DF-CO<inf>2</inf>transfer chemical laser (TCL) (IRIS-I and IRIS-II) facility at Bell Aerospace Company (BAC). The modular design of the device allowed testing to be conducted with both a supersonic nozzle bank and also in subsonic flow with sonic injection for the(More)
