Paper Abstract

A multidimensional model of a transverse discharge HgBr laser has been developed. Laser energy scaling is examined as a function of preionization electron density distribution, electrode shape, and stored electrical energy. Maintaining preionization electron density profiles and electrode contours to a maximum variation of 10% will minimize constriction of the discharge and maximize laser intensity uniformity.
