Abstract

Herein the authors report on the demonstration of an 87% enhancement in cw laser power on the 1315 nm transition of atomic iodine via a 100% increase in the resonator mode volume. O 2 ( a 1 Δ ) is produced by a single rf-excited electric discharge sustained in an O 2 He NO gas mixture flowing through a rectangular geometry, and I ( P 2 1 / 2 ) is then pumped using energy transferred from O 2 ( a Δ 1 ) . A total laser output power of 102.5 W was obtained using a Z-pass resonator configuration.
