Abstract
We report laser characteristics of a gold ion laser radiating on the lines 282.3nm, 284.7nm, 289.3nm and 291.8nm A longitudinal nanosecond discharge has been used for excitation. Quasi-cw lasing was obtained with 33%/m small-signal gain and 110 mW average output power for the strongest line 282.3nm This average output power corresponds to the record peak power of 1.7W. The investigated laser offers promising prospect for various scientific and technological applications.
