Paper Abstract

The results of an experimental investigation into lasing and spontaneous emission of the nitrogen laser excitated by a transversal volume discharge with inductive-capacitive stabilization are presented. The laser operated in the pulse repetition rate mode without gas flow. An average spontaneous emission and lasing power as functions of a pulse repetition rate for a number of charging voltage values of storage capacitors is presented. The radiation pulse stability for repetition rate up to approximately 500 Hz was investigated. In some regimes, the average lasing power rises linearly up to 120 Hz and spontaneous emission power up to 300 Hz. The specific lasing power per unit length of the active volume (along the optical axis) was > 1 mW/cm. The spontaneous emission power rising was linearly at specific pump power per unit area of the plasma layer surface up to 5 W/cm2. It is shown that transverse volume discharge with inductive-capacitive stabilization allows creating enough effective lasers and lamps, operated without gas flow with the pulse repetition rate above 200 Hz. The strong laser beam deviation from the optical axis is found.
