Abstract:

High power chemical laser systems have to potential to provide precise strike capability. The current shortcomings in their chemical handling system greatly limit their applications. This proposal addresses the intrinsic problem of the NF3 handling system. A highly innovative, original approach is proposed based upon the use of functionally graded matrix (FGM) ceramic composite structures. The ceramic outer layer will provide superior resistance to fluorine, while the composite structure will provide the robustness. The FGM approach will address the intrinsic CTE mismatch problem.
