A set of 16 kinetic rate equations is numerically integrated to yield energy storage lifetimes in a chemically pumped iodine laser (CPIL) for various experimental parameters. Storage times greater than 3 ms are possible at room temperature, making the CPIL an interesting candidate for a high efficiency pulsed fusion laser. At low temperatures, storage times may even exceed 1 s.
