The small-signal gain and saturation parameter of a transverse-flow CW oxygen-iodine laser have been experimentally obtained for the first time from output power measurements made as a function of the cavity losses without using a CW probe laser. These measurements typically yield \alpha _{0} \simeq 0.045 m-1and I_{s} \simeq 0.44 kW/cm2for a Cl2flow rate of 1.4 \times 10^{-3} mol/s with an I2flow rate of 4 \times 10^{-6} mol/s. The dependences of the small-signal gain and saturation parameter have been also found on the Cl2flow rate. These behaviors are qualitatively explained by a simple two-level model.
