The (0001) level of CO2 is only ∆E = 18 cm–1 (where E is energy) higher than the v1 vibrational level of nitrogen. 2 A similar effect occurs between carbon monoxide (CO) and CO2. CO is produced in the discharge by dissociation from CO2; it is also often added to the laser gas mix of diffusion-cooled lasers. The cross section for excitation of the CO molecule in the electric discharge is rather large and the CO molecule can transfer energy to the v3 vibration level because the energy difference between the CO vibrational level and the (0001) level of CO2 is ∆E = 170 cm–1, which is smaller than the average kinetic energy.

The output coupler (OC) is also a plane mirror surface; the inner surface of the OC provides the reflectivity for the laser oscillator, whereas the outer surface is coated with a dielectric antireflection coating for optimum beam output (see Fig. 6). 6 Planar resonator. RM: rear mirror; OC: output coupler. using 248 nm or 308 nm or up to 50 percent for small lasers that operate at a lower energy regime. The acceptance angle of the planar resonator is given by the geometry of the resonator; due to the short pulse length of typically 5 to 25 ns, there are only few roundtrips in the resonator.
