Paper Abstract

The characteristics of a RF-excited all-metal CO2 portable laser with 1.0 m infrared optical fiber are described. The laser excited by 45.38 MHz can give 12 W- output power with square-pulse waveform (4 - 15 KHz) at the end of IR-fiber's coupler. The power-density is about 8 KW/cm2. Also using CW-CO2 laser the IR-fiber (0.2 db/m) has transmitted 102W (30 KW/cm2) laser power in the laboratory conditions.
