Paper Abstract

The influence of plasma of the volume discharge on the microstructure of the active surfaces of electrodes and their autoemissive properties in CO2 laser mixtures at atmospheric pressure is researched. A correlation between a change in a microstructure of the electrode surfaces when the autoelectronic currents are increased is stated. It results in a formation local channels in a cathode area of the volume discharge and a resource limitation of small-sized sealed-off pulse-periodical TEA-CO2 lasers. Materials the more stable to the influence of plasma of the volume discharge providing for getting of a maximum resource (N greater than 108 of pulses) are determined.
