Abstract
The efficient pumping of N2 and He/Kr/F2 (45:3:1) laser mixture by longitudinal electric discharge in the form of powerful breakdown ionization wave at driving pulse voltage of -120 kV amplitude, 40 ns duration, 3 ns rise time has been demonstrated. The developed gives us a possibility to excite a nitrogen and an excimer laser mixture with specific stopping energies about 2,1 J/cm3 and 1,9 J/cm3 corresponding as well as to produce laser action in N2 with output power up to 100 kW in pulse having a duration of 10 ns FWHM with excellent laser beam quality.
