Abstract
We describe in this article a system that automatically finds the maximum output power of a metal vapor laser by means of temperature control of the laser heating system. Metal vapor lasers use a heater in order to attain the required operating temperature. Heating is obtained by the laser discharge itself, or with an externally heater system. The temperature of the metal vapor laser is very critical and requires temperature control. When the developed system associated with the typical regulating system to obtain maximum output power. The design is based on the automatic temperature control of the regulating system reference in order to optimize the output laser power. This system can be used with any pulsed laser dealing with a heater.
