Abstract
Modern high power industrial CO2 lasers are the result of decades of technological advancements aimed to improve laser parameters such as gain and saturation intensity to obtain the best power extraction efficiency. In this paper a resonator optimization approach is presented that includes laser power stability as one of the criteria for selecting the best configuration. This approach is applied to a hybrid stable-unstable annular RF excited CO2 laser.
