Paper Abstract

The paper presents a characteristic of plasma focus (PF) devices as new nonclassic sources of charged particles for pumping of gas lasers. The principle of operation of such a source is given and characteristics of generated charged particles are shown. Energy of particles reaches the value of SMeV at supply voltage of 20-40kV. Measure methods of the beam parameters are described and the scheme of the experimental arrangement used to determine the conditions of Ar-N2 laser pumping by ions emitted from a lkJ-PF device is presented.
