Paper Abstract

Characteristics of CO2 laser with 27.1 MHz transverse RF discharge in quartz tubes were significantly improved by distributed gold catalyst. Parameters of catalytic layer were optimized for RF discharge conditions to avoid RF-current shunting while maintaining good catalytic properties. Output power 0.77 W/cm and maximum efficiency 18.5% were demonstrated in prototype laser.
