Paper Abstract

Experimental results obtained on the pulsed repetitive CO2 laser pumped by a longitudinal discharge are reported. The laser pumping system included both the inductive energy storage with semiconductor opening switch and capacitive energy storage. The average radiation power of 300 mW was reached at the pulsed repetitive rate of 10 Hz. The duration of radiation pulse at FWHM was 60 μs, and the intrinsic efficiency was 5,5%. It has been shown that the radiation energy in a pulse at this parallel-flat cavity laser is sufficient for glass marking.
