Abstract
The design properties and preliminary tests of a deformable mirror with a shape controlled by adjusting the pressure of the cooling medium are presented in the paper. The mirror, used as a rear mirror of a stable cavity, was tested under conditions of a transverse flow cw CO2 laser operation. The tests proved that the use of the variable focal length mirror in the laser cavity allows the dynamic changes in the resonator configuration and thus the dynamic and controllable changes in the laser output characteristics.
