Abstract:

The operation of a CW CO2 laser is reported in which a flow-conditioning technique is used to produce a uniform discharge at atmospheric pressure with a specific input in excess of 500 Jg. In this technique the premixed gas is introduced radially at sonic velocity through a narrow gap adjacent to the upstream electrode. Modified author abstract
