We report the operation of a carbon monoxide waveguide laser excited by a transverse radio-frequency discharge at 145 MHz. Single mode output powers up to 10 W with efficiencies up to 6.5% have been obtained from a sealed off device having a square section alumina (Al2O3) waveguide and an electrode temperature ≥-23 °C.
