Abstract:

Carbon Dioxide channel waveguide lasers have been constructed using hot pressed Boron Nitride. This smooth, easily machinable ceramic has high thermal conductivity and extremely low thermal expansion. These properties make it highly suitable for constructing compact, efficient, amplitude stable, tunable low power lasers. Results of measurements made are presented and analyzed.
