Paper Abstract

The intermediate power compact continuous wave (CW) CO2 waveguide (WG) lasers have been studied and developed. Most attention is devoted to small-bore slab WG devices. The results of studies of space discharge electric and laser parameters, effects of pumping frequency, electrical matching of RF supply and laser head load as well as cavity optimization are briefly described and taken into account in practical design. Two models of slab lasers are described and compared with some other known models.
