Paper Abstract

It has been experimentally demonstrated that a three-dimensional axisymmetric-folded combination carbon dioxide laser with five discharge tubes can offer a desired output power and good-quality light beam. The output laser has five sub-beams that start from a mutual point on the inside surface of the output plane lens. The collimation and convergence of the five sub-beams are obtained. In our results, the measured output laser power from a folded resonator was 37 W, and the total output of the laser was 76 W with 10% efficiency.
