Paper Abstract

A transverse-discharge copper-vapor laser (TD-CVL) has been operated at high repetition rates in a steady state mode for an extended period of time. In an unoptimized operation at 1 kHz, an average power of 560 mW was achieved in an excited volume of approximately 40 cm3. It is now feasible to develop TD-CVL systems that can be discharge-heated like conventional longitudinal copper-vapor lasers.
