Paper Abstract

The combination of the fast-axial-flow principle with the RF-excitation method results in the design of high-power CO2-lasers with low order beam modes and excellent pulsing capability. The rated CW output powers are 2.5 and 5 kW, the transverse beam modes can varied between TEM10* and TEM20, the maximum pulse frequency with approx. 100% modulation depth is 20 kHz.
