RF-excited CO2 slab-waveguide lasers are particularly convenient vehicles for exploratory experiments with diffractive-optic resonators. In the simplest resonator configuration, a slab-waveguide structure was used with plane/plane mirrors, one of which incorporated a reflective DOE and acted as a one-dimensional diffractive Fresnel mirror. Two basic DOE resonator configurations were investigated. Results were found to be generally satisfactory.
