Paper Abstract

Main properties of a beam from a flow carbon-dioxide laser were determined for power values of several kilowatts. External energy characteristics of the laser were measured depending on the power supplied to the medium, the medium's total pressure, chemical composition and flow rate. The drop in the mean power of the output beam was evaluated as a function of time. High frequency fluctuation of radiation power was observed. The analysis of beam distribution in the near and far field was carried out.
