Paper Abstract

A 10 kW pulse-periodic CO2 laser with a closed gas- dynamic loop has been experimentally optimized for the active medium pressure and composition, pumping pulse duration and power. We have obtained experimental dependencies for the laser radiation specific energy, generation efficiency, beam angular divergence, laser beam relative and absolute brightness and effective melting depth of steel, Ti and Al specimens on all the optimized parameters.
