Paper Abstract

Our center has developed a new type of commercially available high-power (up to 5 kW) multichannel diffusion cooled waveguide industrial CO2-lasers with ac-pumping (MTL). The physical principles and the results of scientific investigations of these lasers have been published. Such a laser has a parallel bunch of gas-discharge laser tubes placed between two flat mirrors. The laser generates a large-aperture multibeam. The components of this multibeam may be non-synchronized, but there exist the optical methods of their synchronization and aperture-filling. The main advantages of the MTL are: relative simplicity of their construction, low cost of production and maintenance, high level of compactness. For example, the MTL-4 model (4 kW rated power) has a 60 kg, 2 X 0, 2 X O, 2 m laser head, 3 nl/h He consumption and 12% plug efficiency.
