Paper Abstract

Using a mass-spectrometer investigations for gas composition of active medium of waveguide RF-excited CO2 lasers operating in the sealed- off mode h ave been conducted. It has been stated that degrees of CO2 dissociation comprise 10-67% depending on wall material of a discharge bore and depend little on conditions of discharge excitation. Low CO2 dissociation degrees have been achieved when using a gold catalyst in laser discharge volume.
