Abstract

A fast-axial-flow, cryogenically cooled, carbon monoxide laser has been operated at 28% efficiency producing a continuous wave output power of 1.08 kW. The laser uses two cylindrical discharge sections, each 225 mm in length, which are excited by transverse radio-frequency fields at 27 MHz in a linear stable optical resonator. A specific power output of 2.41 kW m-1 and an extraction power density of 9.41 W cm-3 have been attained by optimization of the transverse and longitudinal electrode configuration. © 1994 American Institute of Physics.
