Abstract
A longitudinally excited CO2 laser driven with a reverse recovery characteristics of high voltage diode has been developed. A diode is used to control the high voltage pulse as an opening switch. Power supply for longitudinally excited CO2 laser is composed of a pulse generator, transformer, capacitor, and a diode, is very simple. Laser oscillation has been successfully achieved, several tens of mJ in laser energy has been obtained.
