Abstract : A study was conducted to find new F and H containing compounds that would produce lasing in electrically pulsed HF chemical lasers. The emphasis in the study was on seeking economical, safe, and storable chemicals. Spectroscopic analyses of the lasing outputs were made. The compounds included CH3CHF2, NF3, IF5, SF6, PR5, CF4, C3F8, SiF4, SO2F2, and SOF2. (Author)
