Paper Abstract

The excitation scheme based on transverse, self-sustained dc discharge has been successfully scaled to obtain a cw CO laser output of more than 5 kW. In this paper reported performance data are reviewed, and output power scaling parameters for the scheme are discussed. Requirements for obtaining an output of 20 kW are given.
