Abstract
Ionization instability of the discharge on the small-scale nonuniformities of gas density was investigated. It was shown that high- intensity laser radiation reduces the threshold of gas discharge ionization instability in the fast-axial-flow (FAF) laser. The turbulent characteristics of gas flow in the active medium of the gas-discharge laser were measured experimentally by luminescence method and an estimation of their influence on the wavefront distortion of the laser beam has been made.
