Paper Abstract

The outcomes of spectroscopical investigations of RF-discharge plasma parameters are represented for the CO2 laser mixtures. The main emphasis is made on the exploration of spatial instabilities of luminescence intensity and gas temperature distribution in such discharge. Unlike the theoretical prediction it is shown that sizes of the sheath in a RF discharge weakly depend on excitation frequency and gas pressure.
