Abstract
A pulse forming network for excitation of high pressure TE-lasers using a large number of paralleled waterline capacitors is described. The low inductance PFN can be arranged in different circuits and has to be treated as a lumped circuit. At 33 kV charging voltage the XeCl-laser has emitted 4.0 J optical energy. A scaling of the PFN to a storage capacity of 7 kJ electrical energy is presented.
