Abstract
Recently carbon-dioxide laser excited by microwave discharge has been studied to achieve higher efficiency and lower cost laser system. In this study a stripline was used to guide microwave with TEM mode. This mode has almost homogeneous intensity distribution of electric field and almost homogeneous discharge could be obtained.
