Paper Abstract

A high pulse repetition rate helium-xenon laser is described. The laser produces output at four principal wavelengths and can be tuned to several others. The primary laser excitation mechanism is identified as recombination pumping in the afterglow. The importance of rapid quenching of the discharge current is demonstrated and an excitation circuit to achieve this is described.
