Paper Abstract

The most likely reasons for the hydrogen effect on the CuBr laser performance are discussed. A novel electrical circuitry consisting of two interacting peaking circuits for the CuBr laser excitation is also described. Based on these innovations the output power and the efficiency of a typical CuBr laser tube (electrode separation of 50 cm and i.d. of 2cm) scale up, respectively, to 20 W and 1.5%.
