Paper Abstract

In this work, a new grid was added to a grid corona discharge TEA CO2 laser. The new grid was mounted under the cathode and inside the laser tube. The effect of this new mesh on the uniformity of the glow discharge was investigated. Experiments showed that the new mesh extends the arcing limit of oxygen concentration up to 9.5%. In this study, the effect of the tube size and the electrode spacing was tested on the output and loading energy density in the medium aperture of 2.5 cm on the laser tube.
