Abstract
Pulsed CO2 lasers are the most powerful infrared source of coherent radiation. Volume self-sustained discharge (VSD) is the simplest and most convenient method of pumping. But the main problem of such laser construction is obtaining the VSD. The results of experimental investigation of the influence of stepwise ionization on the contraction basic mechanisms in CO2 gas mixtures are presented in this paper.
