Abstract:

This report describes the design and construction details of flowing-gas electric discharge CO2 lasers capable of 750 W TEM sub 00 output power in the 10 micrometers spectral range. Amplitude and frequency stability, lifetime considerations, and general maintenance of the laser are discussed. Detailed engineering drawings, optics requirements, and a parts list are included to facilitate replication. Author
