Abstract
CO2 Electric Discharge Lasers have proven themselves to be efficient sources of high power, high quality laser output energy. This paper describes the basic concepts behind molecular gas discharge lasers concentrating on the CO2 system. A summary of the three classes of electric laser systems is presented as well as examples of operating devices in each class.
