Sience behind CO2 lasers. Video?

Just out of curiosity. Does anybody know of a good video explaining the science behind a CO2 laser tube?

I understand the basics but I’m curious to learn the sience behind the CO2 tubes. I tried searching YouTube, but the only results I get explain how a CO2 laser cutter works. Not the sience behind the tube.

That was a perfect explanation. Thanks!

Just so I understand correctly: the type of gas (CO2 in most cutter cases) dictates the wavelength?

This one is nice, too.

Thanks! Nice one! :grimacing:

This is the video I use when teaching laser safety.

This video has given me a brilliant idea! I’m trying to sell my old K40 to my dentist!
