Paper Abstract

The UCL-700 (ultra compact laser) is capable of delivering up to 800 watts of cw 10.6 micrometers radiation, suitable for industrial applications such as cutting, drilling, welding and heat treatments. The laser cavity is 50 cm long by a 6 cm diameter and the complete laser head weighs less than 30 Kg. The laser's structure and operating principles are presented and some performance results are shown. Power upscaling developments together with known experimental data show that with a few modifications power extraction from the cavity can be more than doubled.
