Paper Abstract

Thyratrons tend to latch in the capacitor transfer circuit of our low impedance copper vapor laser. This is due to impedance mismatch between the laser plasma and the operating circuit, which causes a large returning inverse pulse from the laser head back to the circuit. The cause of the latching is explained in detail and a new circuit to overcome this problem without changing the input to the laser head, is described.
