Abstract : The patent describes efficient laser device which yields a higher energy output than previously attained. It provides a practically realizable laser structure which is capable of the generation of monochromatic radiation or coherent amplification of usable energy and power levels and with a minimum of modes of oscillation. An illustrative embodiment of the invention comprises a laser generator including two spherical reflectors having opposing concave reflecting surfaces spaced along a common axis. The opposing concave surfaces have equal radii of curvature and a common center of curvature. A plurality of elongated spaced active laser media are axially aligned with an intermediate said concave reflecting surface. Also included are means operatively associated with the laser media where the laser generator will go into oscillation.
