Abstract
An industrial CO laser with output powers in excess of 3 kW and capable of operation at room temperature has been developed within a collaborative Eureka project. The design of this laser employs dc excitation and fast axial gas flow technology within a closed-circuit flow loop. The design and performance characteristics of this device are described.
