Abstract
This paper describes the design and output characteristics of a series of continuous(CW) waveguide lasers in the range of output powers from 2 to 15 Watts. These lasers are internal mirror systems made of a single block of alumina resulting in an extreme miniaturized and ruggedized configuration suitable for military applications. Conversion from CW operation to repetitive pulsed operation is possible by using an RC-network for excitation (relaxation oscillator). A high pulse-to-pulse stability of 1 part in 105 has been achieved using a synchronization oscillator.
