ABSTRACT
Cold cathodes coated with oxide conductive materials, such as indium tin oxide and tin oxide, were applied to dc gas discharges of a sealed-off CO2 laser. Laser power enhancement and stable gas discharge, two areas of laser performance, were affected, in contrast to the uncoated metallic cathode. Mass spectrometric study revealed a correlation of laser power enhancement and an increase in the CO2 content associated with these coated cathodes.
