Paper Abstract

A maximum output power of 13.2 W was obtained at a high repetition frequency of 5 kHz by a transversely-excited copper vapor laser with an excited volume of 112 cm3. Its specific output power density was 118 mW/cm3. It corresponded to a specific output energy density of 24 (mu) J/cm3. We also examined the dependence of the output power on the buffer gas pressure, the repetition frequency, and the charging voltage.
