Paper Abstract

A sealed CuBr laser was designed and constructed. He and Ne were used as buffer gases; it is found that, under the same experimental conditions, the output power of laser increased significantly using Ne than He. We have also added a small amount of hydrogen in the tube, which generated excitation Pulses from 15 kHz. The influence of pulse repetition frequency (PRY) on the laser output power was studied. We have varied the PRF between 10 to 30 kHz by a control circuit and laser output power curve versus frequency has been achieved. The optimum frequency was obtained for maximum laser power. A minimum was obtained on the output power of laser versus PRF which can be attributed to acoustic frequencies of CuBr container structure. Maximum efficiency of this laser was about 0.8%.
