Paper Abstract

The limiting factor of the energy density obtainable in high power dc-discharges for CO2- lasers is determined mainly by the eventual arising of instabilities. It was found that these instabilities are strongly influenced by the gas flow conditions. Theoretical and experimental results leading to significant improvements of the discharge behaviour are discussed.
