Paper Abstract

Strict requirements of modern industry and medicine to laser beam quality, stimulated to fulfil a lot of special researches have been undertaken concerning: a) gas discharge stability and uniformity; b) enhancement of active medium optical nonuniformities in the presence of laser generation; c) new concepts of optical resonators; beam power modulation with a controllable coupling mirror. As the result of these investigations, several series of fast-flow and of diffusion-cooled waveguide industrial CO2 lasers in 0.5 to 10.0 kW beam power range have been designed in the IPLIT RAN.
