ABSTRACT
An improvement to the performance of a CO[sub 2] laser in a slab geometry with a heated gold-plated electrode is shown. The catalytic activity of the gold electrodes to regenerate the laser gas can substantially increase the optimum output power of the CO[sub 2] laser. An output power of 116 W is obtained for a slab that was 370 mm long and had a cross section of 2.5 mm×15 mm.
