Paper Abstract

In the previous our paper we have presented measurement results of the phenomenon of argon additions influence on output parameters of krypton ion lasers. In that paper we have described that small argon admixtures to the krypton discharge increase the laser output power of several krypton laser lines. In actual paper we present following measurement results of this phenomenon. We have observed that neon admixtures cause much stronger effect on krypton laser lines than we have previously observed with argon admixtures. We have also observed the positive influence of neon additions on generation conditions of argon laser lines. The magnitude of this effect is weaker than influence observed with krypton laser lines however the way of the effect is identical. This confirms our explanation of this phenomenon described in. Results presented in actual paper were performed in wide range of mixture compositions, gas pressures and discharge current values for several argon and krypton laser lines.
