Abstract
A simple design of an unstable laser resonator with a continuous rectangular aperture of an output beam is proposed. A mathematical model was developed to simulate the discharge laser cavity and it was used to study numerically the performance of a fast-flow technological CO2 laser with such type of resonator that, as it has been shown, possesses good perspectives.
