Abstract
The present report describes gas lasers pumped by generators with inductive energy storage and semiconducting opening switch. It is shown that these generators significantly improves output parameters of different gas lasers. Longitudinal small-scale N2 laser and CO2 and non- chain HF transverse discharge lasers are developed using this pumping technique. Efficiencies of CO2 and HF lasers up to 17% and 5,5%, respectively, were demonstrated. Advantages of generators with inductive energy storage are discussed.
