Paper Abstract

We report development of long-pulse discharge N2-lasers pumped by inductive energy storage with maximal radiation parameters. The laser output from an active volume with cross-section up to 6×10 cm2 was as high as 110 mJ with peak power of about 6 MW. In mixtures of nitrogen with NF3 laser pulses about 100 ns in duration were obtained. Numerical model of nitrogen laser on mixtures of nitrogen with electronegative gases pumped by transverse discharge is developed. This model allows to simulate laser parameters on transition C3ΠuB3Πg and predict the laser operation in different experimental conditions.
