Abstract

A compact repetitively pulsed broadband carbon monoxide (CO) laser system with intracavity frequency conversion, for which a nonlinear crystal was also used as an output coupler, was launched for the first time, to the best of our knowledge. The laser system simultaneously operated in two spectral ranges: CO laser fundamental band (4.9–6.0 μm) and its sum frequencies band (2.45–2.95 μm). Different designs of the laser cavity were considered. Peak powers of the fundamental and sum frequencies laser pulses were up to 2 kW and 10 W, respectively.
