Paper Abstract

Survey of results of experimental investigations of energy and spectral characteristics of open-cycle full-scale mock-up of CW supersonic e-beam sustained CO laser (SSCO-EIL) of 200 kW power and results of numerical investigations of the possibilities of increasing output power, spectral line selection, and Q-switched lasing of SSCO-EIL are presented. The possible influence of properties of SSCO-EIL on efficiency of several laser technologies is considered. It is concluded that unique energy and spectral characteristics of SSCO-EIL open ways to drastic expansion of areas of laser technologies both owing to the increase of efficiency of laser energy utilization, and owing to reduction of the energy cost.
