A supersonic chemical oxygen-iodine laser of 5 cm long active medium has been operated utilizing a simple sparger-type O2(1Δ) chemical generator and a medium size pumping system. A grid nozzle was used for iodine injection and supersonic expansion. 9 W of cw laser emission at 1315 nm were obtained in the present experiments. The small size and the simple structure of the laser system and its stable operation for long periods make it a convenient tool for studying parameters important for high-power supersonic iodine lasers.
