Abstract
We have characterized three compact carbon-dioxide laser modules in terms of pulsed and cw power, beam quality and temporal stability. The three modules differ in the electrodes dimensions, and have been equipped with resonators based on two different hybrid stable-unstable schemes. Advantages and drawbacks are shown.
