Abstract

To increase output power of a He-Ne laser we propose to use the capacitive rf discharge and implement four channel structure. Most of experiments were carried out with a single laser tube from this structure to optimize the output mirror transmission, pressure and composition of the mixture. A laser tube of 2.8 mm inner diameter and 50 cm discharge length can give an output power of above 5.5 mW at 3.39 <TEX>${\mu}m$</TEX>. Four such tubes in "matrix" structure let us obtain 20 mW of output. Simplified models which can be used to evaluate the behavior of an equivalent electrical circuit with laser plasma and qualitative characteristics of output power of He-Ne laser were also described.
