Paper Abstract

The studies on large aperture volume discharge of TEA (transversely excited atmospheric) CO2 laser are reported. To obtain stable and uniform large aperture volume discharge, the effects of electrode profiles, preionization methods and parameters of discharge circuit have been studied experimentally. For a discharge construction with 70 mm gap and pumped by a 3-stage Marx high voltage pulse generator circuit isolated by resistance with 0.5 μF capacitance each stage, 150 J pulse energy was obtained from a discharge volume about 4 l.
