Abstract
Gasdynamic lasers (GDLs) have been recognized for the last decade as prime candidates for very high power CW infrared laser systems, but in general, have been considered to have very limited performance potential. Recent analytical and experimental work indicates considerable improvement in the specific power of GDLs that can be achieved. This paper presents a summary of these results.
