Paper Abstract

A cylindrical surface-discharge device has been developed to produce intense UV/VUV pump radiation for studying photoinitiated and photolytically pumped gas laser schemes. A homogeneous, high-temperature (T ~ 20-30 kK) plasma is formed adjacent to the interior surface of a dielectric cylinder by an electric discharge. Initial experiments have emphasized electrical, gasdynamic, and spectral characterization
