Paper Abstract

Operation of a TEA CO2 laser with parallel spark array pre-ionization is investigated. Low repetition rate pulsed laser has been made having integrated pre-ionization and peaking circuits. The effect of gas mixture, applied voltage and capacity of the main, peaking and preionization capacitors on output power of the laser are presented. Total efficiency up to 7% was obtained and although the fraction of the He in gas mixture was only 58% stability of discharge was good (2 arc in 55 discharges).
