Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the basic phenomena and technologies associated with design of repetitively pulsed CO2 lasers operating at power levels of approximately 100 kW and pulse repetition rates of approximately 100 Hz. Such systems are of potential interest for ablative propulsion investigations and as potential drivers for higher power systems for launching of small payloads to space.
