Paper Abstract

Performance of a planar cw CO2-laser excited by RF waves at two fixed frequencies of 40 and 125 MHz is studied. A laser output power of 100 W and efficiency about 10% have been achieved, and the influence of the excitation frequency has been studied. The hybrid waveguide-unstable optical resonators were used in the planar laser.
