The recent, development of CO2 Transverse Excitation at Atmospheric Pressure (TEA) lasers- has: generated: expanding interest and success due to their: high. pulsed power: capabilities and simplicity off construction. We therefore decided to construct a CO2 TEA laser because of the need for a high powered, pulsed, coherent radiation source with wave length near 10 microns to conduct absorption studies of laser-induced plasmas. It was decided that the constructed laser should have an output energy per pulse between 10 to 50 joules with a pulse time between 0.1 to 1.0 microseconds. This paper deals with the construction of that laser, and includes a discussion of the background and physics of operation of the CO2 TEA laser.
