Abstract
A novel technique that uses a single master oscillator to serve both the injection and the stabilization function in a TEA-CO2 laser transmitter is described. The method, based on a two-polarization scheme, provides sufficient optical isolation between the TEA laser pulse and the probing laser beam to prevent any damage or saturation of the controlling system. Reproducible and stable SLM operation in the MW power levels is achieved on a long term basis.
