Paper Abstract

The parameters are studied of active media (AM) of He:Xe ( λ =2.03; 2.65 µm)- and He:Ar ( λ =1.79 µm)-lasers pumped by C02-laser induced optical break-down (0B) in the mixture of these gates. The lasing is shown to occur as a result of action of UV radiation from a hot OB plasma kernel on the gas mixture under conditions of plasma shock wave (SW) compression capable of activating AM development.
