At Laserlec Services (UK) Ltd and Laserlec Spares we have expertise in Bystronic CO₂ lasers.
A CO₂ laser uses a gas mixture to create the laser beam. Although this was one of the earliest gas lasers to be developed, it is still one of the most useful. Originally invented by Kumar Patel of Bell Labs in 1964, the carbon dioxide lasers are the highest-power continuous wave lasers that are currently available.
They are also quite efficient: the ratio of output power to pump power can be as large as 20%. The CO2 laser produces a beam of infrared light with the principal wavelength bands centering on 9.4 and 10.6 micrometers (μm). The necessary high voltage in the resonator is created with the help of wear-free semiconductor excitation modules. This means they are smaller, more efficient and reliable than traditional solutions.
