Paper Abstract

Internal field correction elements of the waveguide laser resonator on the basis of statistically homogeneous and periodic structures which can be used for enhancement of operation of CO2 waveguide laser is studied. A diffraction model that can incorporate the effect of light scattering by waveguide wall for typical experimental conditions is formulated. Resonator is divided into a number of longitudinal segments to obtain required precision. Optical losses for eigenmodes of such system (eigenvalues of the round-trip propagation operator) have been investigated for different parameters of the waveguide resonator. A direct comparison between theoretical losses behavior and experimentally measured ones demonstrated a satisfactory agreement for various conditions.
