Paper Abstract

Theoretical investigation has been made to describe the discharge in CO2 lasers excited by high frequency magnetic-confined discharge. The distribution of the electron energy was considered to be a Maxwellian and the most important collision cross sections were considered, the energy balance equation for electron can be put up under the influence of the magnetic field. The evaluation of the present model was performed for gas mixtures of CO2, N2, and He, the influence of the electron energy on the intensity of the magnetic field and the spatial distributions of the electron density and electric field were presented in this paper.
