Paper Abstract

The paper presents a new approach for radiation mode formation, based on the proper choice of the discharge electrode's shape and the distance from the resonator's mirrors to the butt-end of electrodes. In theory and in experiment was shown the possibility to select the basic waveguide mode of radiation. For 2.5 KW slab CO2 laser, excited at 40,68MHz, was obtained the near diffraction-limited divergence.
