Paper Abstract

Recent advances in air-cooled argon ion laser technology have significantly improved the performance characteristics of these lasers. Smaller size and lower costs, combined with improved reliability and longer plasma tube lifetime, have stimulated the development of important new applications in medicine and communications, as well as information processing. In this article some design considerations of the air-cooled ion laser developed at Spectra-Physics will be highlighted as well as a number of potential applications.
