Abstract
A prepulse-sustainer discharge circuit for excitation of a xenon chloride laser is described. A single thyratron switch is used to initiate an electrical sequence which preionizes, prepulses and sustains the electric discharge in the laser. Important parameters within each of the circuits are calculated and the methods of implementation are given.
