Paper Abstract

The conditions for fundamental mode operation of the transverse flow CO2 laser designed for industrial applications have been investigated experimentally. The effect of the field limiting apertures on the laser output characteristics has been studied for three stable resonator configurations described by the different value of Frensel number, G-parameter, and active medium length. The results are compared with the predictions of the theoretical analysis concerning the diffraction properties of the stable resonator.
