Paper Abstract

Output power and efficiency as a function of tube length is determined for small CO2 lasers. Discharge lengths from 5 to 25 cms were studied and all systems were run with static gas fills. Outputs greater than 3 watts in the TEM00 mode and efficiencies greater than 7% were obtained. The effects of tube bore diameter and cavity insertion losses are also assessed.
