Abstract
A transverse-flow, cross-discharge cw-C02 laser with an auxiliary glow-DC-discharge was developed. The maximum input power increased twice to four times as large as that without the auxiliary discharge. A single-path resonator with 65 mm-aperture and a Z-path resonator with 45 mm-aperture were set up. The output power exceeding 3 kW was obtained for both type resonators with 40 cm-long-discharge area. We deduced an equation which gave the output power for the Z-path resonator. The calculated results agreed with the measured output power.
