Paper Abstract

Brief overview of recent optimization studies of hollow cathode discharges, mainly the segmented hollow cathode arrangement for the excitation of metal ion lasers is given here. Results of parametric studies (on the 282.3 nm Au II and 780.8 nm Cu II transitions) including optimization of buffer gas composition, cathode-anode area ratio and inner diameter of the discharge tube are presented here together with some modeling results.
