Paper Abstract

In this paper we repot efficient laser oscillation on the IR 840.4 nm Ag II transition in a He-Ag laser with high voltage 3 mm I.D. and 20 cm long helical hollow cathode. Small- signal gain coefficient of about 60 percent/m for that line was measured at the discharge current 2 A. A similar gain was reported in a conventional HCD at about 10 times higher linear discharge current density. The Ag II 840.4 nm laser transition was found to be homogeneously broadened.
