Optical and Laser-Interferometric Investigations of an Electron-Beam Controlled CO2-Laser

  • M. Hugenschmidt
  • K. Vollrath


The excitation of the rotational—vibrational states involved with the CO2—laser—transitions is achieved by using short electron pulses of 20 to 30 ns duration with energies up to 700 keV. The spatial and time development of the discharge depending on both the cathode and the acceleration electrode—configuration is studied optically by means of the plasma emission and by laser interferometric holographic methods using a ruby—laser.
