Paper Abstract

For the various pumping rates and for the various heights of the gap were calculated the average value of the small- signal gain and its profile across the gap. For the high power slab CO2-lasers, RF-excited at 40.68 MHz, were analyzed the ranges of their geometry parameters vibration, providing for the possibility of diffraction limited performance. In theory and in experiment was shown the possibility to select the basic waveguide mode of radiation.
