Paper Abstract

Plasma injection method has been used to stabilize the main electric discharge in the atmospheric high power cw CO2 lasers. In this work, an analytical perturbative method is introduced for solving Boltzmann equation for a general plasma. This method is applied to a specific plasma injection CO2-N2-He laser. Small signal gain and output power of the laser are calculated in the steady state as a function of gas mixture and pressure. Dependence of small signal gain and output power on the main discharge current also were considered.
