Abstract : A method and apparatus for producing molecular oxygen in the excited singlet delta oxygen electronic state for use as an excited species reactant in a high energy, continuous-wave, chemically pumped laser. In this invention, small amounts of sodium hydroxide and hydrogen peroxide are continuously mixed, reacted, cooled and then combined with chlorine to form a mixture which is injected into a mixing chamber as very fine droplets to provide an efficient means for effecting a reaction which produces excited molecular oxygen.
