Paper Abstract

The presentation will focus on issues which relate directly to the generation of coherent CO2, laser pulses at energy levels of up to~ 1003 and duration of tens of microseconds. Important factors which influence the beam coherence will be addressed in the context of E-beam and self sustained discharge technologies. An illustration of possible local and volumetric discharge non-uniformities will be provided. Diagnostic procedures being implemented at ARL will be reviewed and experimental data provided. Detailed computer modelling of chirp phenomena has been conducted at ARL. The results compare favorably with experimental data; the modelling and experimental data will be presented.
