Paper Abstract

The development of high-efficient and scaleable CO2- lasers is important both for technology and for large-scale laser systems engineering. Our paper reports about original method of active medium excitation with no limits for its volume. Efficiency of the laser constructed on the basis of this method reached 22% and specific power output -1 W/cm3. Pulse regime is proved to be more efficient for active medium excitation then continuous one. Pulsed radiation is also more suitable for material processing.
