1 April 1994 Pulsed CO overtone laser: theory and experiment
Author Affiliations +
CO overtone laser pulses with energy up to 4.4 J and efficiency up to 1% with completely suppressed lasing in the fundamental band were obtained from mixtures of CO:N2 excited by an e-beam sustained discharge with a duration of 1.5 microsecond(s) . A comprehensive model of this laser was formulated. The results of numerical simulations satisfactorily correlate with experiments. The conditions for obtaining efficiency as high as 20% are predicted.
