Paper Abstract

The results of a numerical, diffraction type, analysis performed for a multipass stable resonator designed for a 2.5 kW transverse-flow CO2 developed in IFFM for industrial applications are discussed in the paper. The mode beam properties, output power, misalignment sensitivity, and the output beam focusing conditions are studied for various geometrical configurations of an optical cavity designed for a laser and for different medium characteristics. As the result of the analysis the conditions for the laser operation at the required level of the output power has been specified.
