We have investigated a small-scale continuous-wave DF chemical laser. Measurements are reported which indicate a multiline output power of 11 W using SF6as the fluorine source. With NF3used as the fluorine source, a multiline output power of more than 20 W was obtained. The degree of SF6dissociation was found to be about 13 percent with O2addition.
