IR laser

IR laser

This is the cathode and partial mirrored end of a CO2 laser. It is shown here running with a restricted current of 4mA for testing. (Normally around 12mA). You may be able to see air bubbles in the cooling jacket. This cools the arc tube, anode, cathode and both end mirrors. The lasing beam is infra-red and invisible but most things will incandesce when placed in the path. The gas discharge runs with a potential difference of around 12kV and significantly higher to strike. In many ways, this makes the power supply as hazardous as the beam, but it still looks beautiful.
