Paper Abstract

We reported a discharge configuration for the slab CO2 laser excited by switching power, and the frequency of the power sources is about 300 kHz. The discharge was confined between two water-cooled narrow gap anodized aluminum plates. The uniform stable discharge was obtained in the volume of 4 X 30 X 400 mm3, the input power density is about 25W/cm3. The measurements of gain in the discharge show that this configuration is suitable for the high power CO2 laser.
