Abstract
A continuously tunable 3-atm mixed isotope CO2 oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) chain is developed for a molecular laser isotope separation pilot plant. The characteristics of this laser such as tunability, bandwidth, and output energy are reported. A closed loop gas flow system with a catalyst is employed and its performance is reported.
