Argon Ion Lasers
Gas lasers based on Light Amplification in ionized argon in a gas discharge.
Argon ION lasers are powerful gas lasers, which typically generate multiple Watts of Optical Power in a green or blue output beam with high beam quality. The Core component of an argon ion Laser is an argon-filled tube, made of beryllium oxide ceramics, in which an intense electrical discharge between two hollow electrodes generates a plasma with a high density of argon ions. A solenoid around the tube can be used for generating a magnetic field, which increases the Output Power by better confining the plasma.
