In this report, the selection of parameters for mini-TEA CO2 laser is theoretically analysed. A practical complete metalic-ceramic sealed off mini-TEA CO2 laser has been constructed.The technique of metal solder is adopted to seal the window of the laser component. The output of principle mode is greater than 20 mj with a operating life longer than 106 times, pulse width smaller than 50ns, and shelf life longer than 10 years.
