Abstract : The patent concerns an aerodynamic window for high power gaseous lasers having a plurality of blades mounted on the periphery of a circular disc outside the aperture in the laser cavity. The downwash of the blades as they move before said aperture provide a component directed into the cavity and away from the aperture to inhibit escape of the lasing medium.
