Abstract : In the patent application a gas laser is constructed of discrete segments in such a manner that the gas flowing through the active region of the laser is introduced from a plenum chamber whence it flows annularly into the active region and travels through the region both to the left and right of the input until it reaches the first output region. From there the gas flows annularly out into a shaping region and thence into the output plenum.
