The performance characteristics of a small flash-initiated HCl chemical laser pumped by the reaction between Cl and HI were determined. The variation of laser energy and peak power with total pressure, reagent concentration ratio, flash energy, and flash-pulse duration were obtained. The results are typical of a lasing system exhibiting strong relaxations.
