Abstract
A tunable electro-optically Q-switched rf-excited partial Z-fold CO2 waveguide laser with two channels has been designed. Q-switched pulses were obtained from the partial Z-fold channel. The peak power is 730 W, and the pulse width is 150 ns. Cw laser output was obtained from the other channel, which can be tuned by a grating. A stable pulse heterodyne waveform and its Fourier transform (frequency spectrum) were also observed.
