Paper Abstract

The auxiliary discharge concept offers potential as a simple means for preionization of large-aperture, repetitively-pulsed gas lasers. The results of small-scale experiments and comprehensive numerical modeling are presented. By dynamically profiling the space-charge density distribution and, thus, the electric field, ignition occurs some distance from the electrodes ensuring discharge stability.
