Abstract
The influence of 3He isotope on laser performance of a sputtered segmented hollow cathode discharge He-Cu ion laser oscillating on 780.8 nm transition is presented. At low currents the laser power and small-signal gain are higher for 3He than for 4He. At higher discharge currents the laser parameters are similar both isotopes. However, due to lower discharge voltage for 3He, the same laser output power is obtained at small electrical input power.
