Highpower electron beam preionized CO2 CW laser modelling. I  Description of the investigated device and numerical calculations on ebeam ionization
Abstract
This paper  devoted to modelling highpower CW lasers  gives a brief description of the investigated device and uses an analytical approximation to Bethe's formula to calculate the following quantities  the space profiles in the discharge chamber of the electron beam energy, the stopping power and the source term under operating conditions for fourcomponent mixtures of practical interest. The energy loss of the primary beam in travelling through a thin Al foil is calculated.
