Current increase induced by laser photodetachment of negative ions and current decrease due to laser modification of gas property were observed. This current switching could be applied for the development of discharge switches. Basic data (such as electron drift velocity, photodetachment cross section, electron attachment rate, and electron-impact ionization cross section) are being measured for such applications.
