Paper Abstract

Experimental and theoretical investigations were made of the power and beam shape by waveguide CO2 laser with slab geometry and RF excitation of the active medium with waveguide-unstable cavity. The output power in CW mode was 54 W without astigmatism quality beam when external correcting optics was not used.
