Paper Abstract

A high power repetition rate CO2 laser with mechanical Q-factor modulation has been manufactured. Its generation characteristics have been studied. The structure of shock waves appearing at the interaction between a supersonic air jet and plasmoid formed by the optical breakdown, has been investigated.
