Paper Abstract

I present a novel procedure that uses Krypton gas for laser processing. This includes new tube processing and used tube reprocessing of air-cooled argon lasers. I will explain the dynamics involved in laser tube outgassing and saturation. The use of krypton as a preprocessing discharge gas effectively reduces processing time. I present a novel flow-through processing method. I also describe a novel approach which induces accelerated gas clean-up rates. The processing time for new and used tubes reduces from 3 days to 1 day.
