Paper Abstract

The copper ion laser generates CW UV (248 - 272 nm) and near IR (780 nm) laser radiation. This laser is usually excited by hollow cathode discharge. In recent years, a new discharge, so-called capacitively coupled radio frequency (CCRF) discharge has been employed to pump the metal ion laser, in order to increase laser efficiency and improve its discharge stability and the lifetime of the laser. In this paper, the principle and nature of the CCRF discharge, and its application for the copper ion laser are reviewed.
