Paper Abstract

Based on laser kinetics and diffraction theories of resonators, the gas mixtures (CO2, N2, He, Xe and H2) and the resonator parameters of a typical sealed-off CO2 laser are optimized by applying a genetic algorithm for obtaining a maximal laser output power. With the optimized parameters, the simulated and measured laser power is 2.27 and 1.6 times greater than the usually non-optimized CO2 laser, respectively.
