Abstract
A waveguide carbon-dioxide laser amplifier with combined excitation by rf and dc discharge was investigated. Dependences of small signal gain on input rf and dc power and gas pressure are presented. A maximum gain 20.9 (DOT) 10-3 cm-1 was achieved with a pressure of 75 Torr, total input specific power about 90 W/cm3 and reduced electric field strength of 6 (DOT) 10-16 V (DOT) cm2. Conditions of keeping high gain level have been determined.
