Abstract
A large volume laser tube of dimensions 80-mm inner diameter by 3-m long (15.1 litres) has been built for the study of extrapolation in power of the Cu-Ne-HCl-H2 laser medium. A high power (77 kW) all solid state high voltage power supply has been also used for this purpose. Results show an improvement of the optical power after the HCl/H2 mixture injection. An optical power of 312 W has been extracted from this laser head in oscillator configuration.
