Experimental investigation of pulsed electron-beam-controlled carbon monoxide lasers

  • 48 Accesses

Abstract

Experimental facilities and tests are described for the investigations of the energy, temporal, and spectral characteristics of the emission of pulsed high-pressure CO lasers excited by the electron-beam-controlled discharge method, with emission energy up to 400 J and efficiency up to 35%, and with an excitation volume of 5 liters. The dependences of the output parameters of such lasers on the excitation power and duration, as well as on the composition and density of the working gas mixturej are investigated. It is shown that the results of numerical calculations of the parameters of pulsed electron-beam CO lasers agree qualitatively with the experimental data. The greatest discrepancies are observed for a laser with an uncooled gas mixture and for a pure carbon monoxide laser.
