Ion gas lasers filled with pure argon or krypton are often used in medicine. The number of possible medical laser applications are still increasing. Every type of application requires specific wavelength range. Due to number of available laser wavelengths of argon and krypton lasers, laser filled with mixture of both gases could be interesting universal medical laser source. However output power value of some interesting in medical point of view laser wavelengths may be insufficient in laser filled with mixture. Developed by authors quasi-continuous ion laser supply regime in connection with observed and described by authors the effect of laser power increase in presence of noble gas admixtures allows to achieve laser power satisfactory for certain medical applications but unavailable in typical ion lasers operated with standard continuous power supply regime.
