Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the basic phenomena and technologies associated with design of repetitively pulsed CO2 lasers operating at power levels of ~ 100 kW and pulse repetition rates of ~ 100 Hz and includes some simple diagnostic techniques. Such systems are of potential interest for materials processing investigations and as potential drivers for higher power systems for launching of small payloads to space.
