Paper Abstract

A description of a reliable industrial repetitively pulsed high-power CO2 laser is presented. The laser is capable of continuous operation at variable repetition rates (between 1 and 10 Hz) and variable energy per pulse (100 to 1400 joules per pulse) resulting in a large range in average power (i.e. between 100 watts and 14 kilowatts). The system is modular and includes the laser, power supplies (sustainer and E-beam pulse power systems) cooling systems and optics.
