Abstract
Discharge parameters and load characteristics of a repetitively pulsed e-beam controlled CO2 laser (12 liter cavity) were investigated experimentally at different laser gas pressures up to 0.6 atm and electrical input pulse energies up to 2000 Joules. An electrical power modulator and optimization procedures are presented for matching conditions between power generator exit impedance and dynamic laser-cavity load with respect to efficient laser pulse shaping in the megawatt power range.
