Paper Abstract

Merging modes of optical pulsating discharge generated shock wave conditions are determined for the different parameters of gas pressure, energy and repetition rate of laser pulses. Quasi-stationary wave formation characteristics due to moving as well as stationary optical pulsating discharge for the cases of single reflector and matrix of reflectors will be discussed. Advantages of quasi-stationary wave mode for "Impulsar" engine applications will be demonstrated.
