Paper Abstract

A breadboard model of a planar CO2 laser excited by a wide-aperture microwave discharge of size 2×20×250 mm was elaborated and constructed. Test experiments were carried out with a repetitive uniform microwave discharge with pulse duration of 10-50 μs, repetition frequency of 0.1-10 kHz at a level of the input microwave power of 1.8 kW per pulse and an average power up to 300 W. The spatial structure of the microwave discharge at pressures up to 50 Torr of the laser gas mixture is studied.
