                                 Repetitively pulsed CO2 laser for medium-mass isotope separation
                                 The complex includes a high-power TEA CO2 laser and an isotope separation reactor, in
                                 which Freon molecules containing isotope 13C dissociate; the laser and the reactor have a
                                 common optical resonator.
                                 The implementation of this technology of carbon isotope separation a reliable high-power
                                 CO2 laser with the following parameters was built:

    Production of nano-powder
     Following the development of technologies of synthesis of nanostructured bulk
     materials in recent years with improved mechanical parameters and new
     electromagnetic and optical properties], considerable attention is being paid to the
     production of nanopowders. At the same time, the technique of vaporisation of
     materials by laser radiation followed by the condensation of vapor has been known
     since long and has always attracted attention due to the high purity and small size of the
     obtained particles, economy and variety of the starting materials. The technology and
     the facility developed by us allow production of pure nanopowders of complex
     composition with a quite narrow size distribution of particles using targets made of
     coarse powders of commercially available chemical compounds or mechanically mixed
 Modification of biological objects in water media by CO2-laser radiation
 We have shown the efficiency of the laser method of depolymerisation of polysaccharides and
 meta-bolic activation of the yeast culture Saccharomyces cerevisiae by using a CO2 laser for
 irradiating their water solutions supplied to the interaction region drop by drop. We have
 shown that galacto-containing low-molecular derivatives of polysaccharides obtained from
 pectins of the sea grass Zostera and the Iceland moss by laser modification of their water
 solutions are promising for therapy of chronic persisting infections and stomach and
 duodenum ulcers. Objective product obtained by the laser activation of the yeast culture is
 promising for the preventive treatment of immunodeficiency states of human beings subjected
 to the adverse exposure to ionising radiations, for the prophylactic and complex medical
 treatment of toxic emphysema, for protecting the organism from injury caused by various
 biological pathogens, for example, the grippe virus
2.5 MV subnanosecod pulser with laser triggering spark gap for obtaining high current
high quality electron bunch
This generator was created and delivered to Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands, for
use in a structure of the research complex for production of 100 fs, 100 pC electron bunches, with
an emittance below 1 p mm mrad. It should be used as a pulsed power supply for the injector
which is designed to obtain a high-current high quality electron bunch. The characteristics of
generator are:
-        Voltage amplitude on a loading of 100…150 Ohm          2.5 MV
-        Pulse duration                                         1 nsec
-        Leading edge and falling edge of pulse                  150 ps
-        Pulse jitter concerning a laser pulse is no more, than 500 ps

    and on cells and micro-organisms, так и на клетки и микроорганизмы, first of all on
    yeast cultures.
    It is worth to note that a considerable part of listed works was carried-out in
    collaboration with European (French, German and Sweden) or American enteties in
    frames of projects funded by the International Science and Technology Center.
 3. Research activities where co-operation is sought and
    where we already have good achievements
1. Laser modification of biological objects and carbon
    materials for creation of protection means against
    bio-pathogens and toxic chemical agents.
2. Development of high-power (Terawatt power level
    and picoseconds pulse length) laser facility on the
    base of high-pressure CO2-amplifiers for research of
    interaction between laser radiation and matter.
3. Joint use of the stable carbon isotope С13 in biology
    and medicine, first of all in respiratory tests for
    noninvasive diagnostics of a wide range of deceases
    of human viscera.
