Abstract : This report presents the results of a program conducted to study and demonstrate liquid and gaseous reactants for use in advanced DF chemical lasers. Included within this program was the careful screening of numerous potential laser reactants with rankings based on predicted performance and handling features; combustion tests of six carefully selected attractive advanced reactant combinations; a ranking of numerous advanced cavity fuels, and the analytical comparison of four candidate advanced DF chemical laser systems.
