Abstract
The main characteristics of a compact phase conjugate resonator TEA CO2 laser as a function of the cw pump power are reported. Nonlinear dependence of the output peak-power has been measured, and the existence of an optimum pump power value has been demonstrated. Output peak-powers in excess of 40 kW have been reproducibly obtained for 5 W cw pump power. Heterodyne measurements have shown that a Fourier-limited high-power pulse can be generated.
