Paper Abstract

In this paper, we think that in rf discharge carbon-dioxide lasers there are only cathode space and quasi-Faraday dark region but not plasma area. The electron motive equation in the cathode space and quasi-Faraday region of the rf discharge space are given. We use the ponder motive force to calculate the electron energy in these spaces as well as the size of the quasi-Faraday dark region. At last, some problems of the high power carbon-dioxide laser are discussed.
