Abstract
A convection heat removing from the discharge gap and deexcitation of metastabvle states of N2 onto the plates of the heat-exchanger was used. It is stated that the pumping energy density and the pulse repetition rate area terminated by the local discharges initiated by macroscopic inhomogeneities of the current density of the volume discharge and a repeated breakdown of the gap under the influence of mismatching voltages. Average powers of the laser radiation in molecular nitrogen up to 20 W were obtained.
