Abstract

Spatially and temporally resolved measurements of ground-state copper densities in a 38mm bore copper vapor laser (CVL) operated in non-enhanced, hydrogen enhanced and kinetically enhanced modes of operations were carried out using the 'hook' method. Results showed the important effects of HCl additive in high temperature CVLs. Further, it was found that kinetically enhanced-CVL (KE-CVL) output power is maximum at significantly higher wall densities than un-enhanced CVLs.
