Abstract
An electron-beam controlled, pulsed carbon-dioxide laser with an average output power of more than 15 kW is presented. Laser operation has been achieved for pulse energies up to 180 J at repetition rates of 100 Hz, pulse durations variable between 3 and 10 microseconds, and bursts of 1000 shots with an unprecedented reliability.
