Paper Abstract

Systems used in observing laser beam shape and output power are described in the following text with block diagram illustrations. This equipment is integrated into Combustion Engineering's product line of high power (up to 8.0 kW) A.C. excited industrial CO2 gas transport lasers. Also outlined are systems for opto-mechanically adjusting laser beam profile and in controlling laser beam output via a closed-loop feedback servo mechanism.
