Paper Abstract

The paper presents the experimental results of evaluating the output characteristics of TLA- 600 carbon-dioxide laser with axial turbulent gas flow, as well as the results of numerical modeling. The output characteristic and spatial distribution of laser beam were measured with regard to specific energy input, working mixture pressure, active media length and output mirror reflection. The paper presents the results of experimental and theoretical study and design decisions on a succession of similar type industrial carbon-dioxide lasers with fast-axial gas-flow and dc discharge excitation of active medium developed at NICTL RAN. As an illustration, characteristics of the TLA-600 laser are cited.
