Paper Abstract

The history and development of mini-TEA CO2 lasers is presented, beginning with longitudinally pulsed waveguide lasers and leading up to the current state-of-the-art mini-TEA devices (less than 20 cm overall length) which produce more than 20 mjoules per pulse, single-mode, with an operating life of more than 2 x 106 pulses.
