Paper Abstract

A method for the generation of short, single-mode CO2 laser pulses by applying two voltage gates to an electro-optic Q-switch placed in a three-mirror cavity is proposed. The results of experimental and numerical tests of the method for a TEA CO2 laser are presented. It is shown that the method enables the user to obtain single megawatt pulses of duration in the 1 - 10 ns range.
