Paper Abstract

The design and performance of a uv preionized CO2 oscillator with integral four-pass amplifier is described. This laser is operated at any pressure from 1 atm to 10 atm without the necessity of complex Marx bank electronics. A Q switch is required in the oscillator cavity to delay the oscillator pulse until the peak gain of 4.5/m can be reached. Even without the use of a Q switch to optimize performance, the laser has produced 700 mJ, 1 ns FWHM CO2 laser pulses.
