Paper Abstract

CO2 electrical discharge laser produce CO and oxygen by discharge dissociative of the CO2. It is well known that oxygen is deleterious to the operation of the discharge. In this paper we evaluate methods of controlling the buildup of the oxygen by gas additives as well as by various in-line and off-line catalysts.
