Paper Abstract

Influence of the discharge current oscillations, mechanical vibrations of the laser construction as well as the on- uniformity of the active medium properties on the output beam characteristics were studied experimentally for a high power, transverse flow, cs CO2 industrial laser. The factors influencing the laser output power stability were investigated together with the temporal behavior of the spatial beam profiles.
