Paper Abstract

The aim of this work is to report a new method to achieve a light weight, compact, high power CO2 laser which can be used in industrial applications. It is shown that a metallic cylinder with a relative small diameter (0.6 m) can assure the same flow velocity and cooling of the gas mixture like in previous systems using aerodynamic wind tunnels and special heat exchangers. The construction and operation of a gas transport CO2 laser with cylindrical geometry and two parallel electrical discharges are presented.
