Paper Abstract

Rather powerful output-stabilized sealed-off cw Co-lasers tunable over lines in a wide spectral range find ever expanding applications to solving numerous problem sets in ecology monitoring, medicine, spectroscopy, metrology, nonlinear optics, communication systems, laser chemistry, diagnostics of active media of high-power CO lasers and other areas. We have created an automatic output-stabilized CO-laser model tunable within a broad spectral range (~300sm-1) and based on a sealed-off (i.e. without need for mixture flow and re-filling) active element. The main model characteristics are: total of lines to be selected for single-wave generation - about 90; tuning order - regular or irregular - to be set manually or under the program guidance and operated by computer; cw power in single strong spectral lin - up to 2,000 mW; possibility to operate both at negative and room temperatures; possibility to operate on isotopically replaced molecule CO; long- lasting output power instability - better than 1%; radiation source structure - with enhanced anti-acoustic resistivity; service life - several thousands of hours (about 3,000- 5,000).
