Abstract
A novel excitation technique is presented for TEA-CO2 lasers. A homogeneous self-sustained discharge is obtained with preionization provided through semiconductive plates. The laser can operate in a sealed configuration using a room-temperature catalyst. Details of the construction and operating characteristics are given. Emphasis has been placed on simple and efficient construction in a compact device.
