Abstract
We present the design and performance analysis of a compact C02-laser, using a Variable Reflectivity Mirror (VRM) as output coupler and a positive branch confocal unstable resonator. High power together with good beam quality and compact design is demonstrated. The laser gas is excited by a DC-discharge.
