Paper Abstract

Based on the experiences made with a negative-branch hybrid resonator (NBHR) a double-pass configuration of the NBHR for a 10 kW class Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL) is investigated. Measurements of the intensity distribution of the far field are performed, as well as measurements of the sensitivity against tilts of one of the resonator mirrors. The results are compared to calculations done with the help of the Fresnel-Kirchhoff theory. Enhanced results for divergence, power density in the far field and sensitivity are achieved.
