In this letter, we describe a kilowatt radio frequency discharge excited diffusively cooled slab waveguide carbon monoxide laser, in which the top and bottom electrodes were cooled with liquid nitrogen and which utilized a modified resonator. With this design we obtained a maximum laser power output of 1020 W, which was 10% higher than the same device employing a conventional unstable resonator. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
