Abstract

A compact hybrid TEA-CO2 laser has been developed which when actively stabilised with the cw section either above or below threshold, using the optogalvanic effect in the cw section, achieves long term interpulse frequency stability of < ±0.8 MHz. Interpulse stability is 1 MHz during the period of peak power (0.2 MW) for below threshold cw section operation.
