Abstract
The N2 laser requires the uniform glow discharge for the high power- and stable-operation. This paper describes a novel stabilization technique for the glow discharge of N2 laser in an open-air operation. The laser of 12-cm active length is excited transversely by the Blumlein pulser, and uses the simple distributed-capacitor. This distributed-capacitor leads to the pilot-discharge to suffer the high density glow discharge between the main electrodes. The suitable conditions of the glow discharge formation in an atmospheric air were found experimentally, and glow discharge in TEA operation was achieved by applying the pre-ionization technique, and nano-second UV N2 laser pulses were obtained.
