Paper Abstract

A new method of finding the time histories of the resistance and inductance of a discharge in the laser chamber of a pulsed gas laser is described. This method exploits simultaneously the voltage across the laser channel and the flowing current in the laser discharge while the knowledge of the entire circuit is not required. The mathematical model used is simple and the results show strong variations of the resistance and inductance during the formation phase of the discharge while in the main phase these quantities fluctuate around constant values.
