Paper Abstract

This paper deals with some investigations of the gas discharge and the optical properties of a transverse flow cw CO2-laser in the output power range of 5 kW. The optical qualities of the generated laser beam depend very sensitively on the type and design of the optical resonator. Different unstable optical resonators and optical inhomogenities of the transversely excited active medium will be discussed. Experimental results (laser output power, beam cross sections, focal spot) will be presented.
