Abstract
AS A CRUCIAL STEP IN THE PROCESS OF DESIGNING A RELIABLE, LONG-LIFE XENON-CHLORIDE LASER FOR THE NAVY'S SATELLITE LASER COMMUNICATIONS PROGRAM, WE PROPOSE TO DETERMINE THE CAUSES OF LASER GAS AND WINDOW CONTAMINATION ON AN ALREADY "CLEAN" LASER. WE WILL GATHER QUANTITATIVE DATA ON GAS COMPOSITION THROUGHOUT A LIFETEST AS WELL AS ANALYZE OPTICAL CONTAMINATION. OUR CONCLUSIONS FROM THE PROJECT RESULTS SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO OPTIMIZING LASER RELIABILITY.
