Abstract
Conditions have been revealed, both theoretically and experimentally, where an optical pulsating discharge generates continuous periodical shock waves. It has been shown that this mechanism of shock waves merges into a low-frequency quasi-stationary wave operating in different gases (matter vapor) for a wide range of laser spark energies. The background for multi-megawatt laser based "Impulsar" engine will be presented.
