Laser with 65 MW pulses and 100 kW power , concept and first steps of development

  title={Laser with 65 MW pulses and 100 kW power , concept and first steps of development},
  author={Dieter Schu{\"o}cker and Bernhard Holzinger},
From theoretical considerations it is well known that pulsed CO2 lasers with beam peak powers of 50 MW and a pulse length of 20 μs should be able to launch small satellites. To overcome limitations from ultra high power densities in a single laser source, a new concept proposes a beam source which consists of several individual laser systems. Short laser pulses emitted by 16 Q-switched CO2 laser sources with more than 50 MW power, as of coaxial electrode geometry with excellent beam power to… CONTINUE READING
