Paper Abstract

The strikingly small affect of the mixture degradation on the power extraction observed experimentally in the MLT-1200 laser has led to the examination of the time characteristics of laser output as a function of the gas mixture composition. Processes competitive to the working mixture degradation were considered and we found that the optimum concentrations of CO2 and N2 lie in the region 2 <EQ [CO2] <EQ 3% and 30 <EQ [N2] <EQ 40%, respectively.
