Paper Abstract

The pumping of recombination and collisional metal vapor lasers at a mixture pressure many times greater than atmospheric pressure is considered. Powerful pulse-periodic longitudinal discharge has been used to pump these lasers. It was demonstrated that under conditions of metal vapor ionizing energy many times less than that of dominand gases, the discharge stabilizes itself, thereby making it possible to pump lasers on pressures up to at least 5 atm and average linear power up to 25 kW/m. It has been proposed that the term 'keep-discharge' be adopted to refer to this discharge.
