A pulsed iodine laser driven by a chemical oxygen generator was developed. The energy deposition on I(2P3/2) was made by a high pressure pulsed [MATH] generator. Although this scheme is same as the conventional Chemically pumped Oxygen-Iodine Lasers (COIL), it is unique in that the pulsed laser was extracted by the high-energy density pulsed pumping scheme. The pulse energy obtained was 2.46J, the maximum peak power obtained was 900W. Pulse width was ranging from 2ms to 5ms. The specific energy was estimated to be 7.7J/l.
