Design and performance characteristics of a closed-cycle subsonic cw CO laser excited by a transverse self-sustained dc glow discharge are described. The maximum laser output power obtained to date is 380 W or 950 W per meter of discharge length, corresponding electrical conversion efficiency and specific output energy being 10.2% and 64.7 J/g, respectively.
