Paper Abstract

A gain coefficient of multibeam, multimodule CO2-lasers can be determined by the method of measuring integral power of laser emission from all the channels for the different numbers of modules in operation. The gain coefficient depends on the reflection and transmission coefficients of resonator mirrors, a resonator length, and the number of modules. However, other research has failed to take into account the effect of spectral composition and waveguide components in the flux on the gain coefficient. The purpose of the present paper is to determine the active medium gain coefficient from spectral characteristics of laser emission.
